OK - so it requires me to be a little more careful about what I buy as I rarely research beforehand and have been surprised and disappointed by a few of my purchases but I will pledge to never purchase a CD contaning any form of Digital Rights Management (DRM) (via Boing Boing).

I feel dirty when I do so it only makes sense. I think the last DRM CDs I'll buy are probably the Blue Note CDs I bought last week (they haven't arrived yet and I know that not all Blue Note discs use EMI's corruption so I'm crossing my fingers).

I hate saying never but hopefully this one will be able to stick becasue if the record labels want to assume I'm a thief then I'd rather not give them any of my money.
