Hail to the Thief

Dear EMI

Yesterday I purchased Radiohead - Hail to the Thief.

I am very disappointed to discover that the Copy Control Technology prevents me listening my new music on my iPod. This greatly reduces the value of the CD as I have little opportunity to sit infront of a CD player to listen to it.

In the meanwhile I’ve heard that a lot of music is available for download in MP3 format on the internet, can you recommend a source?

Your decision to use this ‘Security’ seems crazy. I’ll certainly think twice before I pay full price for another ‘Copy Controlled’ CD.

Looking forward to your practical suggestions.
Yours Sincerely
Oliver Boermans
