The major labels real problem is ineptness

Sony has been getting burned by this bogus CD copy-protecion technology that they shipped on 4 million CDs. NYTimes reports it today. I love this part of the article, beginning with a quote from a Sony-BMG spokesperson:

“we’re constantly identifying new ways to meet consumers’ demand for flexibility in how they listen to music, while at the same time protecting the rights of artists.”

But the industry’s mad dash to protect artists – or more accurately, its profits – may have led Sony BMG to move so aggressively, and disastrously, on the D.R.M. front.

Yes, that’s the New York Times correcting major label bullshit about ‘protecting artists’!

Here’s a Sony anti-customer technology roundup and time-line.
