Sony DRM: Singing the Blues

sonybmg2.jpgTalk about a backfire. A brief update on a story I previously blogged about a week ago. Sony attempted to install hidden DRM software into the computers of its CD users. A blogger criticized the software, setting off a firestorm of attention that has had Sony reeling ever since. The latest news:

1. Hackers and virus makers have been exploiting the Sony software as a vulnerability because it’s hidden.

2. Sony has stopped using the software.

3. Microsoft will update Windows to delete the Sony software.

4. Lawsuits are on the way.
