The Replication Economy, part 999:

Student hacks CD DRM by pressing Shift.

"...Software included on the CD limited consumers to burning only three regular copies or to sending promotional copies that timed out after 10 days..."

"...Nathaniel Brown, a BMG spokesman, admitted the restrictions could be bypassed by a determined consumer. But he likened the software, made by SunnComm Technologies, to a ``speed bump'' that would deter ordinary consumers from casually making multiple illegal copies."

'Speed bump'?! People like this deserve to be put out of business.
