Reasons To Not Listen To Coldplay

Fresh off the Sony rootkit fiasco, EMI/Virgin Records has commanded that no one listen to the new Coldplay album – but they won’t tell you that until after you’ve given them money.

“This CD can’t be burnt onto a CD or hard disc, nor can it be converted to an MP3” and “This CD may not play in DVD players, car stereos, portable players, game players, all PCs and Macintosh PCs.”

From what I can tell, the album is available from within the iTunes Music Store – seemingly defeating all those restrictions. Wondering if ‘digital booklet’ is the same list of warnings.

Phew, good thing it wasn’t on my shopping list.
