Who Holds the Liability Bag?
I am not a lawyer and so can't hazard much more than a guess, but wouldn't Sony be liable if someone's machine got cracked using the exploit that Sony/BMG installed? They might claim that the flaw lay in the original OS and not in their code, but I can't imagine Microsoft would let that claim stand. Certainly they'd be liable for contributory damages, even if not criminal penalties?
