Oh my good golly, I am just speakless. And watch me not buy a since Sony artist like ever, even if this is resolved. Could they not be sued for installing malicious software without your consent? I mean, did we sign something agreeing to their terms and conditions by using their CDs?

Somehow, I feel so much less guilty about living off share music communities lately.

Seriously -- this could backfire on them in so many ways, not the least of which is *encouraging* people to d/l their music. I mean, how ironic is it that a P2P is now the more *secure* source for music?

In doing a bit more digging, I found that they offered a removal tool which seems to be able to cause more problems than it solves. Really, it's kinda scary when one has to worry about the corporations doing more damage than the hackers. You can be sure I'm going to be reling on private torrent sources a whole lot lately, which yeah, is very ironic indeed. The Vast CD I was planning to buy? Not so much anymore. I'm so damn curious of the legal, not just the PR, implications though.

The sad part of this is, they'll get away with it. And you know they will. UNLESS, the media gets ahold of it and focuses on the malicious aspect of what they're doing.

That's it exactly! The malicious intent part is what is going to piss people off. I have no intentions of buying *anything* Sony until this is resovled. If I'd signed an agreement, like you said, that's one thing. But this? Evil, I tell you and by damn, they can BITE ME.
