Microsoft to remove Sony DRM code

by Volker Weber

Sony's controversial anti-piracy CD software has been labelled as spyware by Microsoft.

It is planning to include detection and removal tools for XCP in its weekly update to its anti-spyware software.

You know you fucked up royally when Microsoft is one of the good guys.
