> 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 someones 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.
