Last week end I purchased Coldplay’s new album XY and I have just gone to import into iTunes and move onto my iPod when I noticed a small note on the front of the CD case.
“Copy Controlled CD”
Not the easiest warning to see, it is in a small dark green font on a very dark blue background. This sucks! 95% of all of my listening is done via my iPod and I cannot easily move the songs on to it. I have listened to the CD once in the car when I bought and now I need to spend sometime time moving through different conversion processes to get it into an MP3 format so I can listen to something that I legally purchased!
So without iTunes in Australia how do I legally listen to ColdPlay XY on my iPod? I can’t. Instead the music industry is pushing us to use illegal avenues to gain access to the music. I guess that will teach me for not listening to more “podsafe” music.
