I believe it's more widespread in Japan (especially with Avex and I
believe Toshiba, as well as some Sony CDs, especially singles, but
not limited to them), but it is a problem worldwide.
http://www.fatchucks.com/z3.cd.html has some info on the issue worldwide.
FWIW, I typically don't have problems with most of the copy protected
CDs I run into, but then again, I typically do my playing/ripping on
my Mac (ie, not the most typical situation).
