Fuck Sony

Cory Doctorow, over at Boing Boing, has been writing a lot lately about the myriad of ways Sony has been shitting on the consumer and trying to rewrite the whole notion of "fair use." They originally pissed me off months ago by releasing the most recent Bruce Springsteen and Ben Folds albums in only the Dual Disc format in the US, which has the added perk (for Sony) of rendering the disc unreadable by iTunes, thus making it incredibly difficult (though admittedly not impossible) to transfer the music to my iPod.

Given some of the other wonderful new "innovations" they are trying to ram down their customer's throats, I've decided I won't buy a CD from any artists on their music labels--the most prominent of which are Epic and Columbia. Being a huge Springsteen and Folds fan, this pains me greatly, but I cannot in good consciousness let Sony get another penny from me.
