[Geek] Sony DRM Malware

Via technoshaman, here is a writeup on Sony's latest DRM protection method... and what it does to your Windows box.

All I can say is... this is WAY out of line. I'm all for protecting copyrighted materials; when I was in the games industry, I saw publishers reduce our payments due to piracy losses. BUT. There are limits, and this goes WAY beyond them. I can go both ways on DRM depending on the implementation, but installing malware crosses the line... and then sprints down the street three blocks beyond.
