CD warnings

In the past few months, I've noticed something on the CD's that I've bought recently; a warning from the FBI. I first noticed it on the new P J Harvey album Uh Huh Her, and then on the new Cure disc. I think I am bothered by it due to the big department of justice seal, not that I have a beef with the FBI or anything, but why put it on a CD? Yes, we know copying is bad and all, but is there really a need to mess up the design of CD packaging with warning labels? I still hate the fact that Parental Advisory stickers are now printed directly on the cover art of CD's.

The new Hives disc goes one step further, the "no copy" label is still on the back cover art, but in addition to that, a big warning label on the CD it's self. I think the issue I have with all this is that it's ugly; all these warning labels are ugly. It's like having a cigarette warning on a CD, "This CD is bad for your health."
