Texas sues Sony over XCP DRM

According to AP (as reported in the Globe and Mail), the State of Texas has sued Sony BMG Music under its new anti-spyware legislation saying that the XCP anti-piracy code installed by Sony music CDs leaves computers vulnerable to hackers.

Sony had already announced a recall of the discs last week, to be replaced with non-protected CDs, and has even offered to allow previous purchases to obtain MP3 versions of the music.
