intentional degenerated things 2: DRM abandonment problems
These tracks are based on a live sound source had distributed free by a historically famous band. Originally this is a DRM protected wma format audio file. I forgot for a long time the fact that I owned this. One day I found this from a huge library of my HDD and thought to listen again (now available complete version of this performance and we can listen at any time, unfortunately some of fan already knows that that isn't true complete version), however, URL where the web application to verify this rights management should have existed always returned http status code 404.
DRM protection logic of wma had been broken under the concept of fair use that began to be mentioned in the early 2000s, it had been possible for any users with moderate literacy to unlock it - regardless of whether it's legal or illegal.
Although some softwares that unlocks DRM is still on the internet, supported OS for using it is WindowsXP. OS environment can be prepared by an old PC or VirtualPC, in order to optimize the version of DLL controls that, it's necessary to go through several procedures after connecting to the network. However, there's no guarantee that it'll be updated even if connected, and it's very risky in all aspects.
In modern times, under the right circumstances, I've understood that no one can listen to this file anymore. DRM serves the purpose of temporary copyright protection, but doesn't guarantee continuous availability. Needless to say, it doesn't guarantee user convenience. And in just a few years, the technology for playback was lost and it became a blackbox or an ooparts. I tried to force this conversion, but because I couldn't remove DRM, this encoded file was output completely broken.
Digital rights management was abandoned, the music, that anyone could have listened to, has been removed from life support system. That died while trapped in a unique file format. Filename indicates what this was originally from, only the dead flesh that became a mummy was there, and the inside of the sarcophagus was full of death.
It's known that DRM can be unlocked by extracting the key from the old OS DLL and calculating according to a certain rule. However, the means for realizing this process are being lost from the current computer environment.
While there's no chance that the sound dead will be revived, for now, digital-rights-management-abandonment is undoubtedly one of a form of digital death. And these tracks are the result of sounding the dead subject's deliriums and making some interpretations to make it sound multifaceted.
I gave decode-failed sound source a suitable death makeup, on the other hand, I have another interest in this work. Is the original copyright holder's copyright regarding the (users cannot listen to the original music) sound source that cannot be restored to its original form legally valid? How does the law ensure their identity? I would like to ask what copyright protection is for.
As everyone would recognize, there's no worth for this price. This pricing is based on the fact that nobody wants to buy such works or nobody needs to get them. An idea that doesn't propagate and doesn't want to propagate, is just self-righteousness, target of disdain and ridicule, and only a matter of several seconds remaining in short-term memory. As personal motivation and interest, the moment I released something what I have created is my peak. They - for example, persons who blindly believe and discuss that a value of sardine's head if a celebrity says "the sardine's head is precious" - won't understand it no little, and I don't think that they should understand it at all. But, no matter what obstacles there is a way out where surprisingly in close proximity place.
Sarcophagus(Σαρκοφάγος[Sarkophágos]) means 'stone coffin' (as the flesh eater) in Greek, also seals of nuclear accident sites or underground nuclear-waste repositories are often called as such. After all, DRM bound to local format is the thing that should be buried under the tomb, should be engraved "mankind's one of silly wisdom" on its epitaph.
