    According to this report from , the much ballyhooed copy protected BMG album "Comin' Where I'm From" is a hit on P2P, but not because folks want to listen to the latest from BMG. Supposedly, within hours of its release, tracks were available ad nauseum on file sharing networks because the protected cd was cracked. Especially embarrassing to Sunncomm that conducted an "external testing phase" prior to the release, "with the intention of determining compliance with the official test procedures and guidelines for protected content recently outlined by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPA)," They should have added "it's no fair if you push the shift key when you insert the album".The challenge to say you can't copy this album was more than most people could bear. Even for the Dept. of Computer Science at Princeton.
