    This is crazy, Ive been reading about it for a few weeks now.. it really suprizes me how poorly Sony thought about this Or even more tht they did think about it and didnt care..

    They should try a test case. It’s against the law to install malicious software on someone elses PC. I’d like to see Sony get sued for billions for doing this.

    Of course, the American judiciary is not likely to rule in the favour of the public, regardless of the merits of the case.

    Yeah MC, the challenge would be finding a court that wasn’t owned by Sony.

    I say Elliot Spitzer is perfect for the job. He already went after Sony once.
