Uprooting Sony root-kits is fun

Soeren writes on Sony rootkits:

It gets worse. brenno over at De Winter claims (backed up by strings found inside the Sony binaries) that the DRM incorporates code from LAME, an MP3 encoder licensed under the LGPL. Trouble is, Sony doesn’t follow the license properly, so what we’re actually dealing with, in addition to the existing mess, is — oh, the irony! — a copyright violation. A tool whose alleged purpose is to ensure the artists’ and publishers’ copyrights of music breaches copyright itself by using software it didn’t license properly.
