Extended copy protection[edit]

The CD was originally released with Extended Copy Protection, a rootkit based form of copy protection by Sony BMG, who owns Columbia Records, ironic given Phish's lax views on filesharing and concert taping.

After the Sony BMG CD copy prevention scandal, the album was reissued without the copy protection software.
