Piracy is bad, isn't it, Sony BMG?

Piracy. It's a terrible thing. Unauthorised sharing of music? Rotten. Ruins lives. It's like gouging out the eyes of a shopkeeper, downloading an mp3 track you've not paid for.

We know, the RIAA keeps telling us so.

So, then how come Sony BMG has apparently been caught running unlicensed software in its operations.

Perhaps they could make a video with Britney Spears in to teach them the error of their ways?

Their ISP should keep a close eye on everything that goes through their servers from now on.

During the rootkit fiasco, a Sony president asserted that most people didn't know what a rootkit was, so it shouldn't be of any concern to them that Sony had secretly installed one on their computer (superb logic). Evidently they feel the same way about software they haven't paid for - what the creators don't know can't hurt them can it?
