This CBC News update includes:
About 120,000 recalled Sony BMG CDs that create security glitches were sold in Canada, the company said Friday.
The discs contain XCP software, which is used to stop music piracy. But it leaves behind spyware, making computers that play the disc susceptible to hackers and viruses.
I sent the following as feedback:
It is a myth promoted by marketing people that Sony-BMG's dangerous malware was "used to stop music piracy". The fact that they likely infringed the copyright of many software authors as part of this software is clear indication that this wasn't about protecting copyright.
