New Audio CD copy protection

A company called SunnComm Technologies wants to introduce a new way (invented by Stealth Media Labs) to prevent copying Audio CDs. It's called StealthChannel.

They want to use a Miami University "invention" by creating a virtual space in stereo signal, another channel, which would bear a non-destroyable watermark and other infos with range from text to pictures. The channel should come into being by time-shifting of left and right audio channels. The authors claim that human ear can hear no audible difference between the channels. This channel could contain a software which would prevent a copying, among the others. Its advantage should be in the following feature: it wouldn't disappear after copying, even after digital to analog. It is said it would be in the maximum efficient way resistant against digital filtering.

It should be "brought into the life" in reedition of "The Early Sessions" from Ike and Tina Turner.

In what way would it prevent copying ?
Do they expect all digital devices to implement their watermark recognition ?

Sorry, but this is all, what I found. No other details... and the SunnComm website is about everything else, but this topic I haven't found there.

This type of copy protection method usually leads to the condition that PC cannot play the disc  .

Don't forget that Bedeox managed to ABX a line in copy from a digital one in my blind test , and a true DAT line in, not a soundcard minijack.

LOL!

People have already stopped making 128 Xing CBR MP3's -- they 'make' them at 48kbps and then transcode to 128.

How did you know that my post originally had the word "Xing" in it?


Anyway, why transcode to 128kbps when you can transcode to 320kbps and improve the quality even more?
