Actually yes I would like one as well now you mention it. :-)


Let us say I mass-produce them. No SD slot or any digital or analogue
ports, just an un-modifiable PCB and a cheap piezo speaker. You can hear
the music, and record it using a microphone, but you cannot access the
CC-BY-SA file without essentially destroying the PCB.

Can I do that if the file is covered by anti-Tivoising CC-BY-SA?
