What Goes Around Comes Around

This just in:

"It seems that the XCP software from UK company First4Internet that Sony had been using to prevent unauthorised copying of its music CDs, until it agreed to recall some 4.7 million discs, contains code 'infringing the copyright of several open source projects', Johansen notes in his blog. This includes code that he himself wrote for VLC, a free cross-platform media player."

Oh the irony....

The whole sad and idiotic affair is one more reason for people to support the small labels.
