Sony Proposes Settlement in XCP DRM/Spyware Suits
Sony has reached a tentative settlement with consumers who sued the company over the installation of digital rights management software that left consumer computers susceptible to hacker attacks. The software also tracked consumer listening habits. The proposed settlement allows consumers to exchange Cds for copies without the DRM software, a cash payment of $7.50 and one album download from a list of more than 200 titles, or no cash payment and three album downloads. Sony would also agree to stop making CDs with XCP and provide an uninstall for the program.
