Thank you. Now for a usage note. Mr. Chiariglione uses the word
"protection" to describe SDMI's audio munging. "Protection" sounds like
something good, so you should avoid using it when referring to something
you don't like, such as a copy restriction scheme. This has been a usage
note. For more, see: http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html
