Strong opinions, weakly held

More on Sony DRM

Bad publicity for Sony’s DRM is busting out all over. First there was the post about Sony music CDs silently installing a rootkit when you insert them in your computer, and now we learn that Sony is using DRM to fight with Apple over opening the iPod. Of course the iPod works fine with unprotected audio files, Apple just doesn’t support competing DRM. I’m fine with that. (I don’t buy tracks from the iTunes Music Store.)

  1. Your link in the subsequent message about Sony providing a patch is bad. It should be noted, however, that the patch removes the cloaking aspect, not the drivers.

    Unfortunately a threat to boycott means nothing when you’re already unlikely to purchase anything from the company. Sigh.
