STERILE BURNING

June 01, 2005

In an pitiful attempt to help curb music piracy, Sony has come out with a technology they call sterile burning, which makes a CD only able to be copied once.



That just doesn't make any sense to me. When you burn from a CD, you are just *reading* the source CD. And unless reading is what triggers the anti-piracy technology -- which would make a CD only *readable* once -- there's no way such a thing could possibly work. All a person has to do is read from the CD and copy the data onto the hard drive, and then burn from the hard drive.



I wonder how much money Sony has dumped into this waste of an effort.
