Linkin Park has clunking locks

After the Sony rootkit fiasco, you'd have thought that the major labels would have decided to drop the idea of clunking copy protection on its CDs.

That was, until Warners released the new Linkin Park album with some sort of locks on it that stopped people from transferring music they'd paid for to their libraries and onto portable devices.

Perhaps it's not copy protection; maybe it's just trying to save Linkin Park fans from themselves. Either way, it's not really on, is it?
