Most Linux Today readers are already aware of the new corrupt CDs which won't play on computers, PS2 and DVD machines, or have lower quality sound and won't last as long as normal CDs. Of the CDs that will play on computers, they will only play on Microsoft operating systems, and using Microsoft's Media Player software - Linux users will be deliberately excluded.

The Campaign for Digital Rights is holding a Day of Action against the new CDs this Saturday. We will be distributing leaflets outside record shops thoughout the UK, warning potential customers of the danger the new CDs pose.

If, like us, you don't want to be ripped off with shoddy, sub-standard CDs, you can be part of our Day of Action.
