It just gets better and better with the Sony rootkit business. According to Downhill Battle, they used DVD Jon’s code in violation of his GPL, which makes it intellectual property theft. Yes, folks, Sony’s intellectual property is so important that they have to violate your actual property rights to protect it, and in fact they have to violate others intellectual property rights. They have burned and sold millions of disks with this code on it. That sounds like wholesale piracy to me. Thanks to Mark for the link.
