From Grabbing OK, Playing CD on PC Not OK

Digital rights activists are angered by evidence that the new Michael Jackson CD “Rock Your World” will not be playable in PC CD-ROM drives. Sony’s decision to bend the standard CD format has been branded “dubious” and “underhand” by the UK’s Campaign for Digital Rights. The record label’s decision to modify the CD singles so that they are only playable by stereo systems risks breaching trading standards, as no warnings are included on the packaging.
