Sony CD Spyware
Apparently the rootkit isn't the only thing to worry about with Sony CDs. According to Boing Boing, many Sony CDs contain spyware (called MediaMax) that can download itself to your computer permanently even if you decline the pop-up license agreement the first time around. EFF is suing Sony over this. See the Boing Boing post for more information.
