New audio copy protection
The American record company Farenheit Entertainment has announced that it will release a copy-protected CD in mid-May. Country singer Charley Pride made himself available for this test.
The copy protection developed by Sunncomm is intended to prevent the audio tracks on the CD from being read out (grabbing), then converted into MP3 format and then published on the Internet. However, the CD should be playable on all devices and customers who have bought the CD should be able to access MP3 files for their own purposes. To do this, the CD is inserted into the drive of the PC, whereupon you are connected to a website. If you have registered there, you can download the songs in MP3 format and, for example, play them with the help of portable MP3 players or put them on the Internet.
