Wrong. This has ALREADY been going on for longer than two weeks. You make it sound like only whiners need take issue with this or something. I guess you don't care about your privacy or your rights. It is a PR nightmare for the fools at Sony. Installing software without consent AND without providing a means to fully remove it, is illegal in Canada, the US and the UK.

Dont you think they wouldve realized all these problems with proper testing? I mean someone at Sony had to make it and test it to make sure it worked. dont you think they woudlve realized potential virus opportunities? or the disabling of computer hardware?

I think its a huge mistake on Sonys part.

ITs jsut a taste of things to come. MS, HD-DVD, HP, Blu-Ray will all come heavily loaded with DRM and "MAnaged copy" features that will rape you in the ass while you aren't looking.

Sony should have put exact info of what their rootkit does on their CD sleeves, but otherwise they can do as they please. In the future, even Music CDs will come with a EULA.
