Sony BMG Music's controversial copy-protection scheme can be defeated with
a small piece of tape, a research firm said Monday in a demonstration of
the futility of digital rights management (DRM).

According to Gartner analysts Martin Reynolds and Mike McGuire, Sony's XCP
technology is stymied by sticking a fingernail-size piece of opaque tape on
the outer edge of the CD.

That, the pair said in a brief posted online, renders "session 2 -- which
contains the self-loading DRM software  unreadable. The PC then treats the
CD as an ordinary single-session music CD, and the commonly used CD 'rip'
programs continue to work as usual."
