Not "Card Captor" (^_^;

I haven't bought many "real" CDs in a long time, so I didn't know
how widespread the CC CDs were (CCCD = Copy Control CDs).
The most recent CD that I bought "Ryo-ko Sensei no Shinryoushitsu",
a drama CD by Inoue Kikuko and Nagai Noa, is one of these CCCDs.
I stuck it in my plextor CD drive, and it could see the tracks,
but it couldn't get any of the data!
Luckily I was able to read the tracks in my pioneer DVDR drive
(on a Linux machine).

The CD states (on the jacket) that it won't play on Macs,
game machines, some Windows machines, and some DVD players.

I went to the rental CD store and I saw that many of the
"normal" jpop CDs were CCCDs!

Is this widespread around the world?  Or just Japan?

Nagasawa Nao's CD doesn't seem to be a CCCD, but they don't
have it at the rental place.  Maybe I'll have to buy it to get the DVD..
(I'm not sure if the DVD has the full length promo video.)
