More DRM stupidity

It looks like Sony’s copy protection installs a “rootkit” on PCs. Quick explanation: rootkits are baaaaad.

The Inquirer says:

With any luck, and I can’t believe I am saying this, an ambulance chasing scumbag lawyer will take this up and sue Sony into the ground for stupidity on this level. There has to be some letter of the law that was violated as arrogantly as purchaser’s rights are.

So, it has finally come down to this, you don’t have a choice about DRM, your rights are removed and there is no recourse. All of this to protect the profit margins of Sony Corp, at your expense. If there was ever a good argument for piracy, to me, this is it. No, better yet people, just say no and don’t buy this crap, it is the higher ground
