Coldplay gives cold shoulder with new CD

Wow. Wow. Wow.

For once, Cory and I might be in complete agreement.

This is quite possibly the most insane over-reaction I have ever seen.

On Boingboing, Cory puts up a post about the new Coldplay CD and the absolutely brain-dead "rules" that come with it.

The inside label explains that the CD comes with DRM technology which might render it unplayable on many CD players, DVD players, computers and car stereos. And of course, that this DRM tech has been added to ensure the quality of the listening experience by preventing piracy (they hope).


Are ya shittin' me?

This is nuts. Especially since, being on the inside label, you don't see these rules until after you've purchased the CD and opened it up.

Oh, and the kicker? "Except for manufacturing problems, we do not accept product exchange, return or refund."

Wow. Wow. Wow.
