It would appear that the latest drop of Sony DRM software for protecting their CDs from being copied on PCs is being likened to a “root kit” by some out there. The curiously entitled “essential system tools” have been deemed to have caused great difficulty to anyone wishing to play CDs in their PC or those who wish to remove the software from the machine at a later date. Is it right that copy protection should be allowed to extend this far into people’s computers? How far is too far for DRM? source: The Register
