Victory of the Users Over Sony BMG

We all know about the hateful copy-protection software installed by Sony in their latest Van Zant CDs, right? No? See this.

It looks like finally the end user has won and Sony now has agreed to refrain from installing “anti-piracy” (“pro-malware”?)  software in their CDs. But, speaking frankly, Sony has virtually killed the CD industry.

But wait! No need to start partying now, because this is what Sony said –

“As a precautionary measure, Sony BMG is temporarily suspending the manufacture of CDs containing XCP technology,? the company said in a statement. “We also intend to re-examine all aspects of our content protection initiative to be sure that it continues to meet our goals of security ease of consumer use.?

It looks like they won’t give up, will they? They’ll just design a better version to “protect the end-user from piracy” which will be better (read : more restrictive) than the last one. But wait! There’s still hope.
