According to the WASHINGTON POST (11/11), SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT has agreed to temporarily suspend production on music CDs with the controversial antipiracy technology that can leave computers vulnerable to hackers. Last week, SONY was the target of a lawsuit over the use of that technology known as XCP (eXtended Copy Protection).
SONY defended its right to prevent customers from illegally copying music, saying, "We also intend to re-examine all aspects of our content protection initiative to be sure that it continues to meet our goals of security and ease of consumer use." To see the whole article, just click here.
