Official approval for HDD copy of new audio CD

  Stuartli 14:38 06 Feb 2003

Here's the latest attempt to try and prevent audio CD owners from copying audio CDs whilst, at the same time, giving carte blanche for a personal HDD backup:

"Coming in March, Sterling Records will release "Ike and Tina Turner: The Early Sessions" a second session audio CD which is compatible with both standard CD players and PC’s, yet has restrictions on music re-distribution.

"This CD, built by Suncom, Inc using the new Windows Media Data Session Toolkit, plays normally in your stereo or car and presents a rich experience on the PC, including the song tracks in Windows Media Audio.

"The screen shot below shows the rich experience of music videos, album art, and biographical information the CD delivers, as well as the "Copy Music" button that allows the consumer to transfer the music to their PC for personal use."

From perusing hi-fi mags, i have always been under the impression that you can make copies as long as they are for your own personal use only and no-one else has access to them.
