Winamp in a little trouble because of WaveOut?

http://news.com.com/Napsters+music+f...tml?tag=st.num

I was actually thinking about this a little in the shower the other day, before I read this
Quote:
Blogs were buzzing Tuesday about the resurgence of an old technique for recording music on a computer, reapplied to Napster's all-you-can-eat subscription music plan. Using software freely available from America Online's Winamp division, it's possible to turn Napster's copy-protected downloads into unprotected files that can be burned by the hundreds or even thousands freely to CDs.

Got a copy of Cool Edit on your system and you're set to go to do this, it isn't that hard. Not that I know or anything.

Caulton said that Microsoft is also investigating the Winamp tool to see whether any of the company's licensing terms, which allow the software to play Windows Media files in the first place, have been broken.
I hope Nullsoft has all their ducks in a row.

as long as a recording can be output through speakers it will always be possible to make a copy of that music. In short until they invent a descrambler that fits between your ears and your brain it will be impossible to completely protect music. And even then someone would probably hack it.

never used cool edit, but
A little bird wispered the word "audacity" to me. This little bird also told me to bring up realplayer(as the bird was outdated) and just hit that big red circle button with it set on wave out. then you can edit the collection of o's and 1's in the form of noise patterns into different groupings, or songs if you prefer common terminology. I dont know the bird personally, and I dont see why winamp would be the best option for the described violation. oh yea, you need a copy of lamenc.dll or whatever it is to encode to mp3 in audacity , but everyone should have at least one copy hidden on thier computer

I hate the DMCA. Winamp's Diskwritting/Waveout is older than the DMCA so does that mean it doesn't apply?

I'm Back?
