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.
