Texas sues Sony BMG for 'spyware' on CDs
The state of Texas sued Sony BMG, alleging that the company "surreptitiously" installed spyware on personal computers through music CDs with a copy protection program.

"Sony has engaged in a technological version of cloak and dagger deceit against consumers by hiding secret files on their computers," said Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott in a statement after suing under the state's anti-spyware law.

"Consumers who purchased a Sony CD thought they were buying music. Instead, they received spyware that can damage a computer, subject it to viruses and expose the consumer to possible identity crime." ...

Good for Texas! I am force to use Windows on occasion, such as dictation software, and when I get on the Internet, I get from 1 to 6 spyware infestations. I have had software put on spyware also.
