The latest Coldplay (not a) CD has DRM copy protection and a daft set of usage restrictions that you can only read once you've bought the (not a) CD. Well now you can answer back. Skype has a promotion where you can leave a 20 second voice mail message for the band. Here's what I said.

Hi Coldplay, this is Julian from the UK. I just wanted to ask you what you think about the DRM and copy protection on your new CD? You have a great opportunity to change the system here. Why not do something about what your fans hate most? Tell your label to drop the DRM and copy protection.
