We hope that you choke

Information on CD copy-denial systems and how they work.

I got my hands on four EMI Copy Controlled pseudo-CDs today, for research purposes. One of them appears to be a regular Red Book CD with no bogosities, but the other three have corrupt TOC data. It's funny because generic IDE CD-ROMs, like the one on my old Mac, rip them perfectly, whereas both the DVD and CDRW drives on my Linux box choke. More on that later.

My site. Enjoy, some minor inaccuracys I am working on fixing. Im also looking for someone with technical knowledge of copy protection systems to help maintain it. Home server, performance isn't too good, so be patient.
