Liam Lynch: DRM enforced 6 years of Silence

Liam Lynch: DRM-enforced 6 years of Silence

In 2003 someone gave me a CD by Liam Lynch called “fake songs”.  The next day, I popped it in the CD player of my car.  It didn’t play.  On the back: “This disc incorporates Copy Control Technology”.   I cursed and threw it in a pile, where it lay for about 6 years.  Until today, when I saw it and decided to try it on another CD player.  It was inspired enough to listen to.  Such a shame I couldn’t do this 6 years ago.  Maybe I would have “gotten into” him more?  What a hurtful a technology.   Yet our legislators see it as a road to some sort of monopolistic nirvana.
