Yet Sony has.
You know you’re in for a bad day when Eliot Spitzer starts issuing statements about your company. Which is precisely the situation Sony finds itself in today. The New York Attorney General has finally caught wind of the company’s digital rights management misstep and has begun looking into it. BusinessWeek reports that Spitzer’s office dispatched investigators, who, posing as customers, were able to purchase affected CDs in New York music retail outlets long after Sony BMG recalled the disks. That didn’t sit well with Spitzer, who promptly issued a statement warning consumers and retailers away from the disks. “It is unacceptable that more than three weeks after this serious vulnerability was revealed, these same CDs are still on shelves, during the busiest shopping days of the year,” Spitzer said. “I strongly urge all retailers to heed the warnings issued about these products, pull them from distribution immediately, and ship them back to Sony.”
