"While SunnComm is betting that copy-protected CDs will be the music industry's answer to digital
content protection, it's discovering that success stories don't come easy.

Tenn.-based Music City Records, free copies of the songs
appeared on the Internet. Eight of the 15 songs on Pride's new
album, "A Tribute to Jim Reeves," were posted on a private Web
page hosted by Yahoo. And later, consumers complained that
the SunnComm-protected CDs could not play properly on all
devices, such as certain DVD players." Full story at CNET.
