The Attorney General Abbott brings first enforcement action in US against Sony Bmg for spyware violations [1]. Some commentors in Jon Johnsons weblog motivated him to take action against Sony BMG as well [2], but due to copyright infringement. Jon Johnson is the author of FairPlay code that he wrote for VLC. It is said, that Sony took some of that code to run their Sony DRM rootkit. Some more reading about copyright issues related to Sony BMG is available on Samuel Hocevars blog [3].
