Sony lawsuit, iTunes comp

Sony's recent . Settlement class members of the late suit may download albums from any one of three major download services as part of their compensation, one of these being Apple's iTunes Music Store, according to a report from Ars Technica. The new development could draw Sony customers to Apple as an alternative source to buy their music. The copy protection scheme--designed to prevent unauthorized copying of Sony music CDs--used stealthy, "root-kit-style" techniques to disguise itself on Microsoft Windows systems, was nearly impossible to remove without corrupting the operating system, and even allowed malicious users to hide their own programs.
