Simple fix: don't buy any music without a CDDA logo clearly stamped on 
the case/disc/inlay. If there's an album which is unclear, or you won't 
buy because it's protected, mail the record label, any offical band 
websites not run directly by the label, and tell your normal music 
outlet "I refuse to buy this not-CD, please start stocking CDs again 
instead of round plastic garbage"

The CDDA logo is your only proof that a disc is safe - many labels now 
put out protected discs with no warning on whatsoever.
