> Boycott Sony
> By Dan Goodin
> After weeks of criticism, Sony has finally agreed to temporarily stand 
> down on an abusive and likely illegal copy -restriction practice. Hold 
> the applause.
> On Friday, the world's second-biggest record label pledged to 
> temporarily stop making CDs that leave computers vulnerable to security 
> breaches. This is a step in the right direction, but it does not go 
> nearly far enough toward correcting a serious ethical lapse. In fact, it 
> is proof positive that Sony is unworthy of our trust or our business.
> A lot has been written about this issue already. But a lot more needs to 
> be said to ensure Sony gets the message: This kind of behavior can never 
> be tolerated. It may be unrealistic to think many will heed this call, 
> but someone’s got to say it: Boycott Sony. Boycott the company until it 
> comes clean and recalls all the infected CDs. Boycott it until it 
> distributes a removal program. Boycott it until it promises never to do 
> anything like this again.
