Coldplay record label DRM leaves customers out in the cold

The warning to potential Coldplay album buyers is 'caveat emptor.' Their new CD is fully loaded with new and up to date Digital Rights Management on board and lists the rules and regulations on a 'usage guideline' sheet which you do not get to see until after buying the CD and opening it. Only then do you find out that you might be unable to play it on many standard players. Or might not be able to transfer tracks to your mp3 player for instance. They then go on to tell you that "Except for manufacturing problems, we do not accept product exchange, return or refund." Click here for more info. There is also an interesting Skype linkette to be found in the linked article.
