The copyproofness of Sony's CD's cracked with 99 marker


hilarious, Sony Music spent a great deal of energy and money on their agressive anti-piracing campaign. When their copy protected celine dion CD killed imac's the hunt for the cure was on, and users discovered that by adding little bits of tape or a small line drawn with a 99 cent black magic marker on the CD it would both copy and play.

they snicker in wondering what the music industries next move will be.. A ban on magic markers perhaps?
