I am digitizing a genre collection of music, and accessing the digital
files both via the RealOne player, and by hyperlinks from an Excel
spreadsheet. I cannot use these programs as an access point to what's on
the CD.

It happens that I have an earlier, non-protected version of this particular
recording, so my question is more in anticipation of this nonsense
spreading than how to deal with this particular CD.

By the way, these CDs do NOT bear the audio CD logo, since they don't
adhere to the Philips/Sony standards.
