Universal Music Group Boycott

I’m writing to let you know about Universal Music Group’s (UMG) new copy protection scheme for compact discs.

UMG has chosen to take the low road in the fight against music piracy by instituting a troublesome, technically immature copy-protection scheme on select UMG compact discs.

The problem with UMG’s approach is that it disallows the ‘fair use’ of UMG’s copyrighted work. Because the CDs can’t be copied or backed up to a computer hard disk, people who purchase UMG compact discs can’t make a copy of the music they’ve paid for – they must lug around the CD everywhere they go instead of making a legal copy of the music for easy portability. People with notebook computers or .mp3 players won’t be able to take their music along in a more portable form – ever.
