Like the Beastie Boys?

It appears they don't like you. I'm sure we had something on the DRM shizzle on latest CD from them but I can't find it. Anyway it seems the latest news on the protection is that it is a virus - or at least it fits the definition of a virus pretty well in that it sneaks onto a machine and damages functionality. No self replication but close enough for me.

I'm surprised they've gone and done that... fight the power and all that?

They've cost me a fortune in friggin' VW badges too over the years...

Next time I see Mike D, I'll tap him on the nose!

Full intructions for the reg edit are in the linked article.

It's only happening (so far) in outside the UK and US anyway - but it just shows how against 'the man' the Boys really are. It's all a sham apparently. Pah fraudsters.

I'll not bother 'lending' that one thank you very much ILN.

All that hard work we've done to to educate him with proper guitar music and then you go and offer him that!

It's like offering a bottle of whisky to a recovering alcoholic!
