To prevent consumers from illegally copying music compact discs, Sony BMG included extended copy protection software on compact discs distributed across the globe. This project includes a case study which evaluates Sony BMGâ€™s attempts to protect its music, whether ethical, unethical or even illegal. The attention remains on laws protecting copyrights in the United States and describes the impact on all players of the music industry. The policy outlined applies practical restrictions on the future use of copy protection software.
