Sony BMG sued over new copy protection

Posted on Friday, November 11 2005 @ 00:44:02 CET by

There has been lots of fuzz about Sony's new infamous copy protection and BBC today reported Sony BMG is facing three lawsuits over this controversial anti-piracy software.
The row erupted following Mark Russinovich's discovery that Sony BMG in America was using a so-called "root kit" to conceal the program used to stop some of its CDs being copied.

"Root kits" are being increasingly used by virus makers to hide their malicious wares deep inside the Windows operating system.

Sony BMG used a program called XCP created by UK firm First 4 Internet that employed similar cloaking systems to hide the proprietary media player used to play tracks on 20 CDs made by the music giant and sold in the US.
