Sony Rootkit

Cory Doctorow, the head of the Electronic Freedom Foundation, has blogged at that he's heard that the uproar over the Sony Digital 
Restrictions Management software and rootkit has seriously discredited the 
proponents of DRM within Sony.

Facing lawsuits from the EFF, Texas, Italy, and several others - plus a 
nasty PR nightmare that is just starting, this could be a big wakeup call 
for Sony.

additionally boingboing reports that some employers are banning ANY personal 
CDs at work and some libraries have banned Sony CDs. So maybe there is an 
upside for radio.
