Sony -- which recently added MP3 support to its walkman devices -- has abandoned publishing music on DRM-laden CDs. They say that it's because of an "increase in awareness by music consumers," which Engadget interprets to mean "they’ve succeeded in educating everyone that copying CDs is a bad thing."
But I took it differently: I think they mean that their customers have grown aware of what abad deal these DRM discs are and don't want them anymore. IOW, we complained loud and hard and Sony blinked. Link
