RIAA President defends Sony’s Rootkit

So, lets start off with a definition of “rootkit”:


A rootkit is a type of malicious software that is activated each time your system boots up. Rootkits are difficult to detect because they are activated before your system’s Operating System has completely booted up. A rootkit often allows the installation of hidden files, processes, hidden user accounts, and more in the systems OS. Rootkits are able to intercept data from terminals, network connections, and the keyboard.

So, they complain about people “stealing” their music, but they will just infect their PCs with items that can compromise the security. Should I tell them that 2 wrongs don’t make a right?
