Combating Pirate CDs: SMD
« on: November 08, 2004, 10:32:13 pm »

Hi,
I have just received a brazilian magazine concerning what they claim to be a solver to the problem of piracy. It is called SMD: Semi Metalic Disc.
Although they do not describe  exactly what it is, to me it looks like a variation of a CD single or similar tho those compact vinyl records with 4/7 songs.
It says that it can reduce up to 80% the final cost of a CD to the end consumer.
I promise to publish more info as I get it.

Is this 80% of the production cost?  They are already dirt cheap to produce.  It is the record labels that still insist upon gouging the consumer with high markups.

I do agree with you sir. Funny is that they did not even announced a web site, just some kind of telephone and some big guys associated to it kind of supporting it.
I promise to look into it and report here.
