None of them have been advertising that they can get ripped yet and they all 
can.   You'll find some labels selling on the point that their competitors 
cds are broken and sub-quality and shorter.  Compatibility is always a great 
seller.  The cd ripping population is quite large and they wont be happy with 
those record companies doing this when it goes full scale.  

I'm not paranoid that the entire world is becoming corporate and all.  I have 
absolute faith that this "anti-pirating technique" will be broken quite 
quickly and everything will return to business as usual.  If it hasn't been 
already.  Lucky for me, none of the music i listen to comes from any major 
record labels and something tells me the indie labels will be slow if at all 
to come on board with this crap.
