Another sony lawsuit? (The DRM that stole Christmas for Sony?)



Now it appears that the Illionois Attorney General is also investigating Sony in relation to the recent DRM software debacle related to their XCP Digital Rights Management software.

her office has requested information from the company regarding anti-piracy software it included on music CDs that experts have shown exposes Microsoft Windows users to security holes and computer viruses.


How long until we have to keep track of which Attorney General’s are not suing/investigating Sony?

OK – here’s the list…

Texas – lawsuit
Massachussetts – investigation
New York – investigation
Illinois – investigation

Class actions…
National – filed in New York
California – for California resident customers…

That’s all I know about right now (12/12/05)
