Very interesting, thank you bremner.

I wonder how many people this actually involves, and whether they will ever know of this offer!.

Taking the law of averages, I would suspect that there are many people out there, still unwise as to events.

It's the kind of stark reminder the industry needed - to remind big companies that they must do their homework, and that they do not have a divine right to take whatever steps they like in an attempt to safeguard their copyright.

Sony's desperate attempts to recoup their customers confidence will surely have Sony management wishing they'd never heard of First4Internet or MediaMax software.

Its also reported that Sony's rootkit remover has been causing BSOD's on users PC's.

Serves Sony an expensive lesson, they will lose a lot of business as a result.

As Spuds says ^ how many innocents will be aware of the havoc that Sony have created with their "clever" bit of software. They will wonder why their lovely shiny new computer is not doing what it's supposed to do, "Take it down to the computer shop for repair "
