Microsoft to remove Sony DRM code

by Volker Weber

Sony's controversial anti-piracy CD software has been labelled as spyware by Microsoft. The software giant said the XCP copy protection system counted as malicious software under the rules it uses to define what Windows should be protected against. 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.

Regarding the last line...ok I have to admit it made me laugh out loud but geez, we're not so bad.
