Shove that EULA up your ass

First Sony wrote illegal software.
Then, Sony buldled illegal software with an illegal EULA, in illegal CD's.
Then, Sony sold you those CD's telling you that it was "art".
Then, Sony got their ass kicked.
Then, Sony told you "we'll fix it".

Here's what they call a fix:


Insert the CD and you'll read a quite fuckabulastic piece of shit EULA:


Please note that uninstalling from your computer the XCP software and associated content protection files loaded from an XCP-protected CD will NOT delete or affect your use of any audio files that you have previously transferred from an XCP-protected CD. Such files remain subject to the digital rights management rules in the End User License Agreement: namely that you may rip the audio into the secure formats provided on the disc, move these tracks to compatible portable devices, and make up to three copies of each track on to CD-Rs.

Please be advised that this program is protected by all applicable intellectual property and unfair competition laws, including patent, copyright and trade secret laws, and that all uses, including reverse engineering, in violation thereof are prohibited.


Sony: shove that EULA up your ass.

So, we'll uninstall the software, except we're not really giving you back control over your computer and if you try to understand what we're actually doing, technologically, you're in violation of a bunch of scary made-up lawyerese crap.

Oh, BTW, YOUR FUCKING PATCH HAS THE SAME VULNERABILITY AS THE FUCKING CD!

Sony: you suck.
