Retailers not pulling Sony BMG discs

The New York Attorney General's office has started scrutinizing media giant Sony BMG for its sale of music discs containing controversial copy protection software. Members of that office found that many retailers in New York continue to sell the Sony BMG music discs, even after security experts complaints about vulnerabilities in the software led the music giant to recall 52 titles, representing about 2.6 million unsold discs. Sony BMG has come under fire by consumers, security researchers and attorneys for its copy protection, which automatically installs itself on Windows computers after users agree to a typical end-user license.
