Ah, Sony. Such pranksters. In case you missed the deafening outcry this last week, Sony plants a little "friendship" program on your computer whenever you pop in one of their music CDs. This little program watches what you do with the music, reports back to big brother and then, just for kicks, makes pacifists of your computer's security force.
On top of the scandal is Enjoy the Music with an awesome breakdown of what has been happening and a list of the tainted CDs. For chatter in the forums, go here, here and here. And, remember, nothing says, "don't steal music" like "don't buy a CD ever again."
