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.
