If you have been on the web at all lately, you probably know about the lawsuits brought up against Sony BMG about the software used to prevent music from being shared illegally. The software was almost like a virus in the way it worked, and thus brought up many lawsuits.
The latest news is that Sony BMG is compensating people that have been affected. Sony is offering free downloads and money in certain cases, plus bringing in an independent auditor to show they have not and will not use any of users personal information. They also will not produce or sell anymore of the discs with the suspect software on it.
Lawyers and plaintiffs seem to be happy with the resolution.
I think this is good that Sony BMG is providing a somewhat good resolution to the problem, and also have come to this conclusion fairly quickly.
