Sony DRM: Singing the Blues
Talk 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.
