so-called "copy control" doesn't really exist
- Access Control: access to content only available on "authorized" access tools. Creates a monopoly in these tools which can be leveraged to control creative markets
- Examples: DVD Movies (DVD CCA), music from iTunes (Apple), music from PureTracks, Napster Canada (Microsoft)
- only customers of access tools authorized by DRM vendor can access encoded content without "circumventing" the DRM
- harmful unintended consequences (AKA: civilian casualties)
Media Defects: information is encoded in a way that behaves a certain way with existing access tools.
- "Copy control"music CDs which tend to target Microsoft Windows customers
