 "Copy Protection" on the album Velvet Revolver: Contraband - Engadget
The disc has "Copy Protection" from SunnComn called MediaMax, which on some Windows systems will force the user to install software on their system in order to listen to the music and restrict what they do with the music, for example you cannot make MP3s.
This so called copy protection that record companies are trying to force on users is simply going to push people towards getting the files online without paying for them via file sharing networks, buying a non-Windows system and in general, buy less music.
I always wondered what could really be done in terms of actual copy protection, since you've got to be able to play the music on a cd player then the tracks have to be on there somewhere.

 History of Copy Protection
The infamous Locksmith and the more recent COPY ][ are examples of such programs, called bit copiers or nibble copiers because they copy the data one bit or one nibble at a time, rather than one sector or one track at a time.
Those firms that continued to protect their disks were upset by the introduction of a hardware device developed by pirates and later marketed which allows the entire state of the computer to be frozen and remembered, down to the last status bit, and restored at will later.
When disks are copied, the two drives doing the copying are seldom running at the exact same speed, so the duplicate disk will contain tracks which are slightly longer (more nibbles) or shorter (fewer nibbles) than the original.
