Sony DRM: Rootkit? · 11/01/2005 02:44 PM, Tech

I think Sony needs to rethink its “protection” policies. If they want me to buy music, they had better not force me to bend over while I listen to it.

Techie and horrifying (from a “stay out of my system” pov).

BTW, the artists tend to have little or no control over this. The artists own the rights to songs they have written, but labels control most of the album and “recorded performance” profits until tons have been sold. Artists make money on non-recording stuff (t-shirts, etc.) and, to some extent, concerts and song rights licensing.

So, Sony is punishing their artists in this process. Nice job.

Comments are also a good read; they mention additional coverage at the f-secure.com blog.
