CD With Anti-Copying Protection Is a Hit

A music CD wrapped in copy-protection technology has become a bestseller, fueling speculation that U.S. music fans might be ready to accept such restrictions on a wider scale.

Velvet Revolver's "Contraband" has sold 380,000 copies since its release last week, when it grabbed the top sales spot with 256,000 units sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It's one of a few CDs issued in the U.S. equipped with such copy-protection measures, which the recording industry has been cautious in implementing.
