Don't blame Apple for DMB "CD"

The Official Dave Matthews Band Website Guide To Defeating Copy Protection For Fair Use
I put "CD" in quotes because any CD that has copy protection isn't really a Compact Disc according to proper standards. Please don't blame Apple or anyone else for a record label's shortsighted decision to intentionally disable and damage DMB's album with copy protection.
How does the copy protection help if an unencrypted, unencumbered Audio CD can be burned of the complete album anyway? Seems to me you're only making those who legitimately buy an album jump through hoops to enjoy it to its fullest. Meanwhile, true pirates will burn a CD from Windows Media Player once, then take that CD and copy it to sell on the streets.
