Anon is on the right path. The methods used might not make everyone happy. BUT, everyone who uses a PSN knows all to well about them and what they are standing for. I got rid of Sony crap years ago, back when they started running the rootkits in their cd’s. If there is a musical group that I enjoy that is under the Sony label, I don’t buy their cd’s, I go see them in concert. I support the group without supporting Sony. Keep up the good fight, Anon. Not all of us are spoiled little, Verruca Salt’s who need something NOW!
