I'm an ex-Sony customer

Sony apparently didn't learn a thing from the fiasco that forced it to recall 52 CDs with copy protection that makes the titles unusable in iTunes, iPods or any other standard MP3 player and exposes computers in which they are played to viruses and other damage.

The company now has another group of CDs on the market with another copy-protection system that does similar damage.

You can find a two-part list of the affected disks in the comments section of this Washington Post Web log entry. The company isn't recalling them as yet. A Sony list of the recalled disks as a result of the first controversy is here. Despite the recall, I still notice some of these CDs on sale at stores where I live.

I'm buying no Sony product of any kind for a good long while.
