More Sony baloney

" NEW YORK (AFX) - Sony BMG said it is recalling millions of music CDs with controversial copy protection software that experts said could expose personal computers to viruses and hackers. Sony BMG, one of the world's biggest music companies, said it was ending the use of the software provided by a third-party vendor and allowing consumers who purchased CDs to exchange them for similar items without the software.

'The software also secretly communicates with Sony's servers and can be used to send information back to the users' media player programs.'

Sony BMG officials could not be reached for additional comment, but the New York Times reported that some two million CDs with the copy protection had been sold out of some five million shipped to retailers."

Did you read anything in that which said they were changing the abusive and unconscionable EULA?
