SONY WORLDWIDE TO FOLLOW SONY JAPAN'S LEAD?: The BBC is reporting that Sony is going to be axing all copy protection on its CDs - not just in Japan.

While the move to allow people to choose upon which CD player they want to play the music they've bought is welcome, we can't help wondering if there's a slightly more cynical ploy to Sony's move: now they've decided to start abandoning the ATRAC only format for the Digital Walkman, making CDs more easy to rip from is, of course, suddenly a lot more in the company's wider interests.
