Tomcat666 writes "tecChannel has a story about Philips, the holder of the 
most CD digital audio (CD-DA) patents. Apparently, they don't like the 
audio CD copy protection many record companies want to enforce in the 
future. They break the CD-DA standard and therefore are not allowed to use 
the logo. As a conclusion, Philips' next audio CD copier will be able to 
detect and probably circumvent the copy protection of audio CDs." This 
article is Auf Deutsch but the fish does a tolerable job of making it sane 
for those who can't remember the proper gender of all their nouns.
