Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott yesterday bolstered his pending November lawsuit against Sony BMG Music Entertainment, adding a number of new allegations that reflect harm to consumers who purchased certain CDs. The original suit alleged the company surreptitiously installed spyware using so-called "XCP" technology on millions of CDs that consumers unwittingly download onto their computers when they play the CDs.

So, lets see if I get this right. If I install Sony's malware, they are guilty of violating Texas anti-spyware/malware laws. But, if I remove it, I am in violation of the DCMA? Can you say dualing lawsuits?

What do you think about Hillary Clinton's use of private email servers during her term as Secretary of State?
She broke the law and should go to jail.
She violated guidelines -- the issue is overblown.
She placed important state department information at risk.
Her servers might have been more secure than the government's.
I really don't care one way or the other.
