French do something right

The French consumer association (Union Federale des Consommateurs - Que Choisir) is taking the major record labels as well as two large distributors to court. UFC's complaint is that audio CD copy protection is abusive and overly restricts fair use, particularly as the record labels are already paid a levy on all blank CD-ROM sales. UFC picks its battles carefully, and rarely loses, so the outcome should be interesting. The story was reported in most French media yesterday evening and this morning. The national radio-station-of-record, France Inter, used a Mac user for its man-on-the-street interview ;)
