TEXAS VS. SONY

November 21, 2005
by: jovial_cynic
This whole situation with Sony's malware has gotten big - now the State of Texas is suing Sony for $100,000 per violation of the CPSCSA (Consumer Protection Against Computer Spyware Act). I'm not sure if that's per customer, and I'm also not sure if the suit is going to be passed onto the folks that actually made the software for Sony... but in any event, this is sure fun to watch. Between Sony's music and the constant battle they're having with the PSP, they sure have a fight on their hands, and it'll be good to see the company crumble under the weight of consumer interest. The people have spoken.

Hopefully, Sony will lose this legal fight, and other companies will be aware that following in Sony's footsteps is a generally bad idea.
