Sony's CD Exchanges

Here is a link to get to the webpage for exchanging the CDs produced by Sony that have the XCP content protection software that spies on the musical files on personal computers. The page claims to have a complete list of the titles that were used to distribute the software. Sony must have been trying to distribute widely, as the musical genres are greatly varied. Can you imagine that someone who listens to Pete Seeger or Flat & Scruggs as a threat to Sony? Luckily for me, my new Bob Dylan CD is not on the list. Do I trust Sony? I think I will wait awhile before I load it on the laptop. So far it has only been played in the car and in the Walkman.
