Time to Settle Up with Sony BMG

If you were upset about Sony BMG's dangerous digital rights management (DRM) released in millions of CDs last year, now is the time show that you care. The settlement process has begun in EFF's class action lawsuit against the entertainment giant. Music fans who bought the affected CDs can submit claims for clean CDs. Some customers are also eligible for extra downloads.

There are two big reasons you should take the time to fill out the claim forms. First, it will get you what you thought you were buying in the first place: music that will play on all your electronic devices without installing sneaky software. But this is also a way to show Sony BMG -- and the entire entertainment industry -- how important this issue is to you. If you take the time to claim the product you deserve, maybe other music labels will think twice before wrapping songs in DRM.
