Coldplay (the band) have launched their latest CD (X&Y) with a piece of DRM that might make it impossible to play the CD in about any device you have, except for an ordinary CD player. Personally I only own DVD players, so I will not be buying this CD (I do own the others). The hilarious part is that the disclaimer in the CD states you can’t return the CD if you disagree with the license, you can only return it if the CD is physically broken. The best part is: you can only read the disclaimer after opening the CD. I am wondering if this is legal in Germany…

The fine folks at Groklaw decided it would be fun to see what happens if pizza would come with a Colplay like disclaimer.
