Afterthoughts
While posts 2-4 were short to the point of brusqueness, they were factual & not overtly rude. That, the rudeness, was started by OP in post #5, continued by her in post #7, responded to by Davno in post #11, & she snapped back at him in post #12. A mini-flame war that probably caused her departure from LQ.
Sad...Sad...Sad.

ok writing this for the 3rd time :::)))) trying to find the right tone




all i asked in the first place was technical help


i bought a disc to play on my computer but it does not can you help?



if you do not wish to help or do nor know the answer fine simply move on
having looked around this was 2 years ago! i came to the conclusion that there really is no way to bypass this type of copy-protection



if you find my question offensive by its nature please remove it



I have found this site so far a tad unhelpful/unfriendly/judgemental



i use many other sites for advice and never haver encountered a similar attitude there



so archtoad you are right i do not come here anymore



Ps i would be grateful if you could remove my internet address from your previous post
i would never publish yours or anyone else's out of respect I sincerely wish you all a Happy New year

You will get answers to your technical questions if they do no harm to LinuxQuestions.org. Copy-protection is always a matter. I live in Germany, and here it is illegal to copy any medium that has a copy protection, even if you have bought it and it simply is yours. So Archtoads question about your country is legitimate, especially because Archtoad is a moderator and therefore has to care for the forum by definition.

To your question: The only way I may copy a copy-protected CD without being illegal in my country is to play it with a normal CD-player and record it with your PC. But was already mentioned before.

I don't see the need, it's changed already. Also, I'm not sure that it's as big privacy or security problem as one might imagine: it's embedded in every packet that goes between your computer & the Internet -- in either direction! However, confirm that you are in the UK, & I will do as you ask.

You still haven't answered my questions about your location or what you do to read "normal" posts.

FWIW, your choice of color bothers at least one member w/ a different visual impairment:

Thank you for sticking w/ us & trying to find a good tone.

i live in Norfolk in England and here we tend to trust people


and yes quasi-blind in the right eye and do not like to discuss that either. sensitivity not a priority clearly blue is better for my eyes i see it clearly


i really dislike the tone of this entire conversation/site i ask for help and am getting a grilling

Are you sure about that?

In any case, any help you get on here is free and is out of the kindness of the members. You aren't paying for it so if you don't like it then sod off.

Strictly speaking, making a private copy of copyrighted media is illegal in the UK.

What about V+/Sky+ then? All the content on the BBC is copyrighted, yet those copy and store it indiscriminiately. I'm not going to even get into the problems thrown up by the fact if you view a web page all of its content is "copied" to your RAM, to your Display, and many copies are created in this process.


However this has already been looked over by the ops, and ok'ed for discussion.

not overfriendly mayhaps


and really is this a linux kind of attitude? we all help each other in the Linux community as noone knows everything if you want help on lossless conversion ask me i have a fair bank of kn owledge collected with the help of friendly Linux users



come on there seems to be a lot of judgmentality and unkindness on the pages i have seen here


what is it with this site? come on guys all i ever did was ask for a bit of help



Let me start again I bought a demo disc on ebay and i just wanted to copy it to my harddrive so i can listen to it


i bought it i want to listen to it no crime so far it is copyrighted hoooooooooooooooooooooo

big crime now whoooooooooo maybe guantanamo a fair punishnment

i attach a picture




i am a composer and a graphic artist and put all my work out for free GNU inspires me Linux inspires me


some of the reactions i have seen here pain me To me Linux spells a freer world a free world NOT a copyright world




thaT GUY here is my hero so maybe i am in the wrong place if you are all hard-line followers of the Man's Law. Simple question is whose Law is it? and then maybe now ... i don't know Peaxce my brothers ....Happy New Year Devnull10 be kinder in 2011 mayhaps



http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/3435/bradley24.png


ps i was going to ask to have my account terminated i have changed my mind i really want to be here now help and be helped in the spirit of Linux this is not corporate america LINUs is a swede not a legalistic brute


so softy softy and kind dudes then we can all learn from each other

Ah, some people get rilled up at different things, they only appear angry as they are quick to defend that which they love (linuxquestions) against anything which may threaten it

Out of interest have you checked the site/myspace of the CD's artists, maybe they have mp3s you can just download, or would be able to provide you with them? Its always worth asking.

now this is kind and helpful i have my own music on myspace not a great site in my view tho but hey it is free

they turn your music into 96kbps slimline nightmares there but of course you can link lossless from elsewhere like bandcamp.com or box.net


and thank you for your kind suggestion dj


ps i do not think there is any way i could rip that disc i have even tried the version of EAC under wine which can rip everything EAC 095 pb3 and noooooooo dice so it beggars the question if they are so bothered about copyright why do they not do that to ALL discs this has really puzzled me still does.....

I was going to say the analog loophole, but then it dawned on me.

Its the big red book.

There is a... "standard" that CD's are meant to meet to be classed as compact Discs *(not disks) and so meeting this standard means they'll play on any CD player, I'm guessing that whatever has been done to that CD, may break this standard.
