Sony disaster

BoingBoing has a nice roundup of the various steps and developments in the Sony DRM PR catastrophe.

The PS3 rumor is particularly awful – let’s hope it’s just an unwarranted conclusion.

How many other record companies but sleazy malware on their audio CDs?

Update: So according to Sony the bit about the PS3 is false speculation. It really was too awful to be true. I buy a lot of games, but often they’re second hand, or I buy em, play em a bit, then sell em to friends. Not being able to do that would seriously affect my buying / playing habits. (If only I could rent games here… but as far as I know that only exists in the U.S. I recently read the history of game rentals somewhere, but forgot where.)
