Barry Ritholtz has a nice analysis of the spin the Music Cartel is putting on the recent copy-protected Velvet Revolver CD that just came out. An excerpt (from Barry’s email, not blog post) that especially caught my eye:

Here’s the oddest aspect of the DRM: iPod-owning Velvet Revolver fans cannot transfer the music from their CDs to their pods unless they violate DMCA and hack their CDs. That’s right — if a consumer wants to use their legally purchased CDs on their legal MP3 player, they must become felons. The same is true for those iPod onwers who buy the music on iTunes music store — it wont work with their pods.
