There is that. ;)

Sony's DRM rootkit also appears to violate the Computer Misuse Act in the UK
and may have legal problems in other parts of Europe. Plus, I'm fascinated to
read the idea that Sony appear to have used parts of LAME code in their
product, does that count as shooting yourself in the foot? Oh, and of course
it doesn't work on Linux or Macs anyway. Boycotting Sony is probably
worthwhile, although that probably won't mean a great deal for most people on
this list. It's probably enough that we continue to forge ahead with building
a positive alternative while we watch the corporate music business screw
itself into the ground. ;)
