CD Copying From CNN.com: a student who posted a paper on how to defeat a CD copy protection mechanism (by just pressing the shift key when the CD tray is closing) is being sued by the software maker. Let's see how this works ... someone releases information on the weakness of a piece of software and they're being sued for it? This shouldn't last a second in court. What's disturing here is that the way the protection mechanism works is by loading a driver file from the music CD as soon as it's inserted into the drive. Hmm ... someone should sue the software maker for not disclosing to end users that they're loading software on their computer.
