    They're around 150B each, so not expensive. You can get them in pretty much every shopping center or supermarket, they're easy to find. Beware though, irritatingly enough most come with copy protection that stops you converting the songs to mp3 for use in mp3 players, mobile phones or the like.

    Is it legal to copy the music from the CDs to mp3?

    Stupid move on the record companies part as many people who like to support the artists are still forced to buy hacked pirate versions of CDs so that they can use on their MP3 players .

    There are of course other ways round the protection too.

    Mike, have you tried with recent releases? Some recent releases don't seem to have the strict copy protection that is such a pain in the backside. Not sure how they decide which to protect and which to leave unprotected though.

    In some countries yes, in some countries no, and in others the rules are not clear.

    There was talk a few years back, in Europe and America, that 'music discs' sold with copy protection should not be sold as CDs but must be labelled as data discs. There were/are some CD players that couldn't play them because of the copy protection.

    One of the chain stores for CDs, CD Warehouse, just closed down in Emporium and elsewhere.
    I don't know if this is because of piracy or increasing use of MP3s.

    CD Warehouse in Bangkok was a franchise business of the worldwide chain. The company went into liquidation in UK a couple years ago. No doubt internet downloads partly to blame.

    BS2 stores seem to be doing well in Thailand ... Central World having the biggest store.
