As the storm over the XCP anti-piracy technology has calmed down, Sony BMG has come under fire for its other DRM technology.
The MediaMax software that is supplied by SunnComm was already flagged for a security vulnerability. And now Texas attorney general Greg Abbott alleges that it illegally installed on computers: the application installs even if the user declines the end user license agreement. The agreement pops up when a user first inserts a music CD in his computer.
The complaint was added to another Texas suit against Sony over the negligence with the XCP technology. In that case Sony could face a fine of up to $100,000 per infected computer system.
Hopefully a company driven by greed will listen a financial spanking.
