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.

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.
