Re: Sony Music

Sony's not the only ass-hat record company out there...* Virgin seems to be quite the tool, as well.

That's actually not true - a lot has happened just in the past week.

That being said, this is a repost

Re: Sony Music

hehe, yeah but that whole blog issue that started it was a while back, but I do understand that most people on here aren't nerds like me.

Re: Sony Music

To update the article a bit, it's estimated that about 528,000 DNS servers worldwide have tracked hits from computers infected by this software, and of course most DNS servers will have more than one infected PC off of them.

Trojan's are already out which take advantage of the Sony Rootkit software.

Apple Mac OSX boxes are not affected and will play the CD's normally without any DRM interference.

Sony has now agreed to recall all CD's and replace them for free with non-DRM'd versions, at a cost of tens of millions of dollars.

Class action lawyers have not yet filed suit, but that's only a matter of time.

Some are demanding that Sony refund people's money who don't want a replacement CD.

This effects 49 titles and a couple million disc's (I forget the number offhand).

Re: Sony Music

Oh, and there's also some controversy over the fact that it may have included LGPL'd or GPL'd code, without releasing its own, in violation of the licensing agreement.


And it's 4.7million cd's

Edit:

At least one class action has been filed, alleging sony did not disclose the true intent of the software.

Re: Sony Music

The state attorney general of Texas has now filed suit against Sony for violations of the state consumer protection act for installing spyware. They are seeking $100,000 PER VIOLATION.
