Sony people are NUTS!

OK, they are just Nuts. As EFF points out, Sony CD's EULA is outrageous. What they forgot to say is that this EULA is completely illegal in Portugal, and probably in lot's of other countries! Yep, selling CD's with that EULA is forbidden in Portugal. OK, trying to sell isn't illegal because the CD is not illegal, just the EULA, but if you try to sell that CD, you're trying to make someone accept an EULA (which is accepted as long as you buy it), and accepting the EULA is illegal since it forces you to comply with a violation of user rights.

Yep, it's time to Boycott Sony.

  1. Hi,

    Which part of the EULA is illegal in Portugal?

  2. Portuguese law is quite explicit regarding art ownership, copyright laws and owners rights (artist and owner of the piece of art). With no exception, the legal owner of one song (either the song is in a Audio CD or a "Sony bullshit blah-blah Disc" or any other format) has some rights like having one legal copy of it wherever you want, or having the right to take the song to wherever you want... In fact, ALL these nine points are illegal in Portugal.
