I think this is more of an assassination attempt on a company that defies Sony by making DVD players that will play CD-R, CD-RW, MP3, VCD, and SVCD. All my friends own Apex DVDs because Apex is more powerful. Sony wants all DVD players to be crippled from reading CD-R and MP3. Apex, not being a monopoly and not owning a movie studio or recording label, naturally sees these weak Sony players and says “We can do better than that and make a buck.” More power to them. Apex is what capitalism is SUPPOSED to be. Sony’s corporate dream is a new order of feudalism.
