    Ok, so they won't replace CDs that you crack, but if you bought a DRM protected CD, you can get it replaced. Between that and MS doing the work of hunting down and erasing the software on your HD, you are only mildly worse for the wear. Sony on the other hand, much worse.

    Of course, they haven't released their plan, which I expect will entail either getting in a fight with the moron parading as a big-box retail manager (be it target/best buy/etc) or spending $5-10 for shipping it to Sony plus their "shipping and handling" and waiting 4-6 weeks.

    I am so upset and outraged over this issue, but I'm glad something is being done about it. I have my suspicions that my boyfriends pc has been affected by this whole scenario and I'm MAD. However, it is helping me convert him to the Mac world. (Only because since he has used iTunes and loves it...that is just the beginning...) In my experiences with the Sony DRM scheme the Real Player hasn't worked for him, and he loves the interface of iTunes compared to the Real Player. Like I said, just the beginning...

    I think we all ought to spread the word. Make this hurt Sony financially as much as possible, and make sure that this does not recur. Shame on Sony.

    Yes, I will say, I will NEVER EVER buy a Sony product because of this. I am sorry, but this feels so underhanded and sneaky. It really makes me SICK to my stomach. It's just not right. I should have access to what I pay for, and no one should prohibit me from doing so. GGGGRRRRR!!!!
