Anti-Pirating App for Music CDs: Windows Media Data Session Toolkit

Industry : Anti-Pirating App for Music CDs: Windows Media Data Session Toolkit - macmusicThe big music labels find their sales dropping as more and more people have the means to burn CDs. Microsoft proposes a solution: Windows Media Data Session Toolkit, which was unveiled at the 37th Phonographic Industry Show on the Côte d'Azur, France.

The drawback of, for example, the Sony Music protection technology is that the CDs cannot be read on portable CD readers, car stereos, or computers. Also, last year, hackers managed to get round the Sony protection.

With the Microsoft app, Labels can now burn CDs which can be listened to even on computers. The CDs will contain a layer reserved for the computer, that the label will configure to, for example, forbid burning copies, explained David Fester, Director General of Digital Media at Microsoft.

Universal Music and EMI, are "quite enthusiastic as the system will enable industrials to include their own protection instructions in their CDs" said Fester.

This is for Windows! What about the Mac?
