Sony demonstrates it still has no respect for its customers. This is the same company that installed an exploitable rootkit on its customers computers. Surely the ability to force your customers to surrender their recourse against you has to be a signal that you have monopoly power or something very close to it? I can't help thinking that rights to remedy your supplier's negligence should be inalienable.

Fascinating article that reveals how the movie industry's control-freak paranoia that treats all third-parties as criminals has as a corollary the degradation of the movie experience for paying customers becuase projectionists turn out to be untrusted third-parties who have to be controlled with ridiculous degrees of technical measures.

Great pseudo-dialogue with Sony over their latest near-miss.

I can understand why a channel manager would want this ("But what will I sell WalMart if we go for downloads?") but it seems about as smart as Burger King requiring you to queue in-store for a token to use the drive-through.

"Instead of spending nearly endless programmer time locking out users, Sony should focus work on a more positive solution ... and encourage legal uses of homebrew software." Most vendors would kill for customers this passionate.
