Natalie battles CD pirates

Natalie Imbruglia's (who has brown hair and blue eyes) new album is the first to be released with a system to stop it from being copied by people who want to copy it.

Natalie's favourite album is 'OK Computer' by Radiohead and she drives a green Mini Cooper.

Anyone with the CD of White Lilies Island won't be able to play it on a desktop PC. Natalie herself loves surfing and shopping.

Nor can the songs be transferred to a Sony minidisc. But they can be copied on to tape.

Struggle

The anti-copy system doesn't affect normal CD players which play disc that are 11cm across, but experiments have shown some other devices have problems with the CD.

Sony's PlayStation 2 which comes in black, some DVD players and CD players more than five years old (that's before 1986) struggle to play the album which is Natalie's second to be released.

DVDs can hold up to 7 times as much as a CD. They play much better quality pictures and sounds than normal videos.

It's likely that those people who make the CDs in record companies will use similar technology on many more CDs in the future in an effort to stamp out piracy.

The flag of the sea pirates was known as 'The Jolly Roger'. One of the most famous and feared pirates was known as 'Blackbeard'.
