New Audio CD/DRM Technology

According to News.com, the recording industry is working on new DRM technology that would limit the number of CD copies that can be burned from the original source. Although I’ll respectfully withhold from personal opinions on this for the moment, it’s interesting to watch how the tail is wagging the dog these days in the recording industry. The implications to online download services such as Napster, iTunes and others should inevitably start to convolute matters, as current arrangements with the labels currently allow for unlimited burning of purchased audio downloads.
