Setting aside the issue of copy protection, I would be really upset if I discovered that a CD I'd played on my computer left behind spyware -- especially if I also learned that the spyware made me susceptible to hackers and viruses and I couldn't remove it without ruining my CD drive.
What was Sony thinking?!
Monday Update: The State of Texas has sued Sony under its anti-spyware law. Sony recalled the CDs in question last week.
Many thanks to Missy of Missyisms for forwarding me the lawsuit info.
More here from Newsweek: Sony Gets Caught With Slipped Discs. Apparently the spyware ran afoul of the Homeland Security Department.
