Music "Coldplay's new CD comes with an insert that discloses all the rules enforced by the DRM they included on the disc. Of course, these rules are only visible after you've paid for the CD and brought it home, and as the disc's rules say, "Except for manufacturing problems, we do not accept product exchange, return or refund," so if you don't like the rules, that's tough." -- the newly self-employed Cory Doctorow on an insert which comes with new copies of the band's new album. Isn't this the cd equivalent of the non-skippable copyright notice on dvds? Is the next step to have something similar at the start of cds, someone telling us not to copy or else before the first track starts?
