Sony CD DRM Can Be Evaded With Piece of Tape

See this report
from Gartner researchers Martin Reynolds and Mike McGuire.  Just
another level of bizarre stupidity in this mess. Reynolds and McGuire
sum it up nicely:

“Sony BMG’s DRM technology will prevent
neither informed casual copiers nor high-volume ‘pirates’ from doing
whatever they like with the content the disc [sic]. It does, however,
load ‘stealth’ software — software that has been demonstrated to have
suspect effects — on uninformed users’ machines. The bottom line: Sony
BMG has created serious public-relations and legal issues for itself,
and for no good reason.”
