Sony DRM/Rootkit issues escalate

Sony are currently facing legal action over their DRM on CDs, the implementation of which acts as a rootkit. Cases are being bought in California, New York and Italy. Meanwhile, the first trojan virus that utilises the cloaking in the applications has been spotted.

So Sony got caught poorly implementing protection that they believe will save revenues, their response was quick but badly thought out and now they are facing legal action and their tools are being misused. Wonder how many sales they’ll lose from this?
