Gilberto Gil supports CD-burning automats

Rainer sez, "The suggested news (in Portuguese) says, briefly, that famous musician (and now Brazilian Culture Minister) Gilberto Gil is putting his weight behind a project to install CD-burning automats in Brazil. Each machine will have an inventory of 34000 tracks and a customized CD will come to about R$10 (US$3.30), less than half of the R$24 (US$8) it would cost at a record store. According to the inventors, this will cut down on piracy; over 60% of records sold in Brazil today are pirated, as the minimum monthly wage of R$240 is equivalent to 10 CDs."
