The up and down side to music

What is up with the music industry trying to fight off technology? Word on the street (and by the street I mean Slashdot and Neal's word) is that new music CDs try to install software onto your computer which prevent you from copying or ripping the CD.

Rather than try and keep up with technology, embrace the future, and adapt a buisness model the music industry chooses to sit behind an old and dying medium. It's only a matter of time before CDs become obsolete (if you don't consider them obsolete already) and mp3s become the medium of choice.

On a happier note, the new Switchfoot album is above average. Personal favorites include Lonely Nation, Happy Is a Yuppie Word, and Politicians (just to name a few).
