 Sony’s sour note | CNET News.com

Sony BMG Music Entertainment finds itself singing the blues this week, after copy protection on many of its CDs struck a sour note on fans’ PCs.
The record label will recall millions of CDs that, if played in a consumer’s PC disc drive, will expose the computer to serious security risks.

The company added that it would release details of its CD exchange program “shortly.”
