Sony Says Don’t Worry about Rootkit

Sony BMG has released another patch for its rootkit digital rights management (DRM) but you shouldn’t really be concerned according to Sony.

Listen to NPR’s story concerning the Rootkit fiasco. There is a line that you are sure to love.

“After taking issue with anyone using the terms “spyware, malware or rootkit,” Thomas Hesse, President of Sony’s Global Digital Business, literally says: “Most people, I think, don’t even know what a rootkit is, so why should they care about it?”

Why should we care? Where do I start….

Since money talks let’s choose to NOT buy Sony Music. They’ll listen.

    Don’t stop with Sony, don’t buy cd’s from any major label… Arkansas in general and Little Rock in particular has one of the better music scenes in the country. Support local musicians by buying local music and more importantly seeing these acts in the club circuit where they actually make the money to produce their product… When musicians can produce their own product they receive a (much) larger portion of the profit and consumers get a quality product at a lower price. A win/win all the way around.
