    Is there anyway to rip an audio cd i bought that is copy protected! I had no clue this was the case and when I try to play it on my iMac, it spins and quickly ejects the cd!

    Besides doing this: http://www.macmerc.com/articles/Hacking_and_Tech_Mischief/14


    is there any other way of doing this? I'd love to transfer the tracks to my ipod, thanks!

    Do you know why it won't run on your Mac? Because it installs software (SPYWARE) onto your computer that defines how you use the cd they own and are "licensing" to you. You see, those music singers make plenty of money by concerts, but the RIAA makes money by you buying their cds. Pretty much, they're pissing on Mac computer's invulnerability to their spyware, therefore their music won't work.

    And Windows users claim that Mac users are enslaved to DRM. :rolleyes:
