You can run but you can't hide from the MPAA
The Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. (MPAA) has expanded its crackdown on online movie piracy by filing seven new lawsuits against online sites. Websites targeted include Isohunt.com, BTHub.com, TorrentBox.com, TorrentSpy.com, NiteShadow.com, Ed2k-it.com, NZB-Zone.com, BinNews.com and DVDRs.net.
“Website operators who abuse technology to facilitate infringements of copyrighted works by millions of people are not anonymous – they can and will be stopped. Disabling these powerful networks of illegal file distribution is a significant step in stemming the tide of piracy on the Internet,” said John G. Malcolm, Executive Vice President and Director of Worldwide Anti-Piracy Operations for the MPAA.

Why buy them?

I don't understand why anyone would even buy CDs anymore. With spyware, rootkits, copy protection that keeps it from working, and a no refund policy it seems stupid to buy CDs anymore. I haven't bought a CD since I ran into two that wouldn't even play on my PC, one wouldn't even play in my stand alone CD player, and stores won't refund money on media.
The movie and music cartels are the biggest crooks in this country, far worse than any other organized crime group. They've ripped people off, hindered technology, and corrupted our government and our laws.

Getting around CD protection is easy, though the fact that it's there at all angers me greatly as most people won't have the knowledge of how to get around it. Simplest way I've found is to digitally extract the tracks to wave sound (.wav) using IsoBuster then make another CD from those tracks, making sure of course you use a burner than understands you don't want gaps between your songs!!!
You are correct though: companies are making the laws for us, and this MUST come to an end, peacefully if at all possible, though I'm not against a war if they turn it into one.
