Sony / BMG shoot own foot with DRM

Just saw a snip on the Black Friday Morning News about the Sony / BMG DRM fiasco (apparently Sony wasn’t sure that installing spyware on their cusomters machines was a bad thing). Anyway, some “industry analyst” made a comment that I hadn’t thought of: “Sony just gave kids another reason not to buy CDs and to download music instead” I guess because I have never really been an [illegal] downloader of music, I hadn’t thought about this impact. But why should kids today buy music when the music companies are going to mess up you machine?
