Woman sues over copy-protected CDs

Author: JT Smith

Anonymous Reader writes "California native Karen DeLise has filed suit against independent label Fahrenheit Entertainment over copy protection it added to a recently released Charlie Pride CD. The security placed on the CD intentionally prevents consumers from playing it on computers unless they register their names on a Website, a site that presumably creates a short list of potential pirates should the tracks on that album make their way to Napster clones. The security also prevents the CD from being played on DVD players and DeLise has charged the company with consumer deception. http://www.mp3newswire.net/stories/2001/cdsue.html"
