CTRL+ALT+DEL: SunnComm decide to drop lawsuit on the basis that it's suddenly realised that not only does it not have a case, it's basically just spent the last four days publicising that the expensive software it's sold to the record industry as a way to foil those pesky kids can be disabled by holding down a single key ("doesn't want to hamper academic research").

We don't want to hamper academic research, either, so since Sunncomm have no problem with it, the name of their driver is currently SbcpHid - we suspect they'll be changing that soon, and adding a line to the Terms and Conditions to the effect of "I won't hold down the Shift key."
