It looks like Sony BMG wants to kill all piracy, except for when they do it. After Sony tried to call PointDev, a company that makes administration software for windows, Sony BMG gave them a pirate license. This prompted PointDev to to mandate a seizure of Sony BMG servers which showed 4 servers containing pirated PointDev software. PointDev also claims that up to 47% of software on Sony BMG computers could be pirated. I wonder if Sony will find a way out of this are have to pay up.
The FCC has finally redefined broadband to increase the minimum speeds to 768 Kbps. While this is still slow it is at least a start to push more companies to increase speeds.
