EFF wants your help to sue Sony

EFF is collecting stories from EFF members and supporters who have purchased Sony-BMG CDs that contained the "rootkit" copy protection software. We're considering whether the effect on the public, or on EFF members, is sufficiently serious to merit a lawsuit.

If you satisfy the following criteria, we would like to hear from you:

    1. you have a Windows computer;

    2. First 4 Internet's "xcp" copy protection has been installed on your computer from a Sony CD

    3. you reside in either California or New York;

    4. you are willing to participate in litigation.

We have not made any final decisions about filing any legal action, but we would like to hear from music fans who have been harmed by the Sony-BMG "rootkit" copy protection technology. Please contact allison@eff.org.
