Today I went to a shop to get the new Phil Collins CD called “Testify”. The songs I heard on the radio sounded nice, and I own all other Phil Collins CDs already. Unfortunately the CD was labelled “Copy Protected”.
I usually convert new CDs to MP3 in iTunes, then listen to them either on my iBook, my iPod or as MP3 CD in my DVD player or my MP3 car stereo and leave the original CD in the shelf with the other 800 CDs I own.
Phil seems to agree with his record company that doing this is theft of his intellectual property and he therefore doesn’t want me to listen to his music on my iPod.
I didn’t buy the CD.
