33% of those who don’t rip CDs would buy a copy-once CD

US consumers are not overwhelmingly antagonistic toward the concept of copy-restricted music CDs, provided these CDs come with the proper incentives, according to Parks Associates. When given a choice between a normal music CD and a copy-once CD priced $5 less, 33% of those who do not rip CDs and 27% who rip CDs preferred the copy-once CDs. The music industry proceeded with the idea of copy-protected CDs very cautiously in 2004, releasing only 10 mln in the US.
