What illegal downloading has led to ...

The music industry has a notoriously sordid history in the continued endeavors of finding ways to control piracy and other copyright infringements. The latest conflict involves Coldplay's newest CD. As seen on Eminent Domain, the CD comes with a number of restrictions. Essentially, "the CD can't be burnt onto a CD-R or ripped to a hard drive and converted to MP3 files. The CD might not play in some computers, DVD players, car stereos, or personal CD players." If that's not insult enough to the innocent consumer, "except for manufacturing problems, we do not accept product exchange, return or refund."
