Met my first Copy Controlled CD today,
 Paul Kelly, "Ways and Means".

Bunged it in the drive to rip it into ogg so I can listen to it while programming.
Hmmm, whierd sounds as the drive speeds up and slows down
 no progress being made, lets look at that case again.
Damn, a "Copy Controlled" logo. I've bought one of those
 "shiny silver things with music on" that aren't CDs.

If you ever have the misfortune to meet one,
 don't strain your geekpower,
 a thin band of blue whiteboard marker,
 just touching the outside edge of the tracks...
