Sony Faces Class Action Law Suit over Rootkit DRM

Categories: Intrusive TPMs - Rootkits

The suit claims that around June 2005, Sony BMG began to issue some CDs that install digital rights management software that continuously monitor for rights problems, depleting a computer's available resources … the technology cannot be removed without damage to the system and that Sony BMG does not advise consumers of the existence or true nature of the program.
