Rules for listening to your CDs

(originally posted January 3rd, 2006)

Coldplay's new CD has a HUGE list of rules, and stipulates that the copy protected CD might not play in any device that has the capability to copy, including: DVD players, car stereos, portable CD players, game systems, and computers. Oh, and of course, you can't download songs to your MP3 player or iPod.

According to Boing Boing,

"these rules are only visible after you've paid for the CD and brought it home, and as the disc's rules say, 'Except for manufacturing problems, we do not accept product exchange, return or refund,' so if you don't like the rules, that's tough."
