Re: Copy Protection


No, it doesn't. The only problem with it is that the track order on the booklet doesn't match the CD. The CD has the same track order as the European version.

Re: Copy Protection


MrSnip said something about it having
some new copy protection that they are trying out.
(invisable)
I don't believe him cause the copy protection
is only a detourent anyway and is designed to
slow the flow of Pirating.
Just another desperate attempt to make a buck
by the industry but the more they try the more
money they lose.
Spending money on copy protection software
is only a waste and they lose more than they save.
Can you say RETARTED! emoticon

Re: Copy Protection


If there's some new kind of copy protection on the US version of Bananas, it doesn't work very well. I made a copy easily, using an antiquated CD burner (I had to rearrange the tracks to my liking!)

Incidentally, there is a way to get around the other copy protection - I believe David_Meadows (Dash? emoticon ) mentioned it in a previous thread. Someone from Princeton, I think, found out that holding down the shift key as you put the CD in your computer bypasses the copy protection. Sorry - I know this is probably not the most legal thing in the world to do, but it does work!

Re: Copy Protection


Copy protection itself should be illegal
cause once you buy something you own it.

Can you not video record a t.v. program?
Can you not record off the radio onto a cassette?
Can you not burn a cd from one file or another?
Etc etc etc etc etc etc.........................
Can you not orally read a book at a book reading
Can you not recite poetry from a book at a poetry reading?
Can you not read out loud from a bible at church?
These are all copyrighted materials and it's the same as
copyrighted recording's.
when a doctor read's from a book on a radio program
anyone can record the copyrighted material the doctor is reading.
Can you also not copy a copyrighted picture
or a page from a book,by using a copy machine at the
local print shop or on your scanner copier at home
and send it out on the internet or in the mail?

The point is as I said before "once you buy it you own it"
and it belong's to you to do whatever you want with it,
accept "distribute it ,sell it or charge a fee to show it"

When you download something and you share it,
then you are breaking the copyright laws.
Sharing is the same as distributing it
and that's where you run into trouble.
If you are sharing copyrighted material then you are
leaving yourself wide open to get caught
cause you can be detected, cause you are putting it out there
for everyone to see and or use.
If you don't share then how can anyone monitor your files?
They are your own personal property and if you don't share you can't be detected but if you do then the software you are using to download the copyrighted material
is public domain.
It's a fine line but it can be bypassed lawfully.
You just have to be carefull how you use it.

So the bottom line is the record industry are
the lawbreakers here by robbing us and trying to detour us
from copying so they can make more $$$$$$$$$$$
it's a game that they will eventually lose big time.

They should have gotten together with the hardware companies and found some way to work together but they dropped the ball on that one,
and now they think they can come after us.
But we are smarter than that. emoticon

No, in most cases you can't. It's classed as creating a performance based on the work and that's a violation of copyright. If anybody could do that without paying for the privilege, how would playwrites ever make money?

No. See above.

Yes, you can. The Bible is not a copyright work. (Some modern re-writes might claim copyright status. That's a dubious point and would depend on the nature of the re-write.)

They can but I think they would be breaking the law to do so (in most circumstances).

No, that would be illegal (except in certain well-defined cases).

This is about the only point I agree with emoticon

posticon Re: Copy Protection


I emailed EMI Canada about the deteriorated sound caused by the copy protection 2 months ago and have not gotten a response. I can be a petty and resentful individual, so I'm going to compse a letter informing them that I will no longer buy EMI products, and that I will just download them. I'm sure they don't give a crap, but I'll feel really manly at least for telling them where to stick it.

Re: Copy Protection


Hey David
If I'm wrong then there are one hell of a lot
of outlaws in the world today.(billion's)
Once you buy something it belong's to YOU.
The system is losing out on a lot of revenue then
cause if I'M WRONG then everyone doing these thing's
would be busted.

You must know the law,but do you know
the worldwide variations of copyright infringement?

and If you do then please explain creatively,I would
like to know more about your fact's (opinion's)
on this subject,there should be a law against telling someone what they can and can't do with something
that they own,within reason.

In Thailand there are no copyright law's
is this wrong?Should it be wrong?
My point is that it will never be stopped.

Re: Copy Protection


Whatever the rights and wrongs of it, the 'copy protection' on Bananas is so simple even I could bypass it and make a copy (for purely personal use, of course!) emoticon
