Update: Report From the Protest Against Sony BMG At Popkomm
EXCLUSIVE: This report came in this morning from the organizers of the protest against Sony BMG at Popkomm in Berlin:
"(At) Popkomm, we staged a small action at the SonyBMG stand with our large "Copy protection Disempowers" banner. SonyBMG are to date not cooperating with providers who would like to deliver music downloads without restrictions and protection schemes. For this the MP3-format would be well suited.
We therefore suggest a Boycott of SonyBMG-music which is delivered with copy protection. Sony was responsible for the Rootkit-disaster, spreading millions of cds containing malignant software. Sony is also one of the largest manufacturers of hardware with built-in copy protection systems." – Marcus @ Netzpolitik.org (site in German)
