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. 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).
