DMCA doesn't seem to apply to audio CD copy protection
The cd protection schemes are designed to either make the disc unreadable in a PC, or sucker you to install software that interferes with ripping using autoplay. For the former, the protection works only to prevent access, not to ALLOW it. It doesn't work to allow playback in a CD player, as the cd player, which is the intended playback device, just ignores it completely. For the latter, which does allow access on a PCm and would otherwise qualify, depended on a feature of obsolete operating systems that forces a run of the installer on the PC session. This has not worked since Windows Vista, which gives you the opportunity to say no to the install using UAC (and then rip the CD), and has never worked on non windows operating systems. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:26, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

streaming of radio stations over the Internet is also impaired by the DMCA
streaming of radio stations over the Internet is also impaired by the DMCA. For example: No playing an artist twice in a row. No pre-announce of songs. No Program Director of a radio station. especially in a major market, is going to alter his programming to fit such restrictions.
