Don't Mess with Texa's computers

Heh heh heh! Sony is going down.
The crisis at Sony BMG Entertainment worsened Monday when the Texas attorney general sued the record label, saying it violated the state's new anti-spyware law.

Also Monday, a consumer rights group filed a lawsuit against the No. 2 record label that also cites spyware concerns.

The lawsuits follow Sony's recall of nearly 5 million copy-protected CDs that contain a hidden file susceptible to viruses when played on a Windows-equipped computer. The company has asked retailers to remove more than 50 CD titles from store shelves and to replace them with non-copy-protected versions expected in stores by the end of the week.
