The cynic in me thinks it's important that Sony be beaten over the head with this thing until kingdom come. It's just a shame this story never spread far beyond tech circles.

The rootkit scandal isn't a small matter. It's a serious act of irresponsible anti-consumer behaviour, and not one to be forgotten. Ideally someone would have gone to prison for it, but no. It seems reasonable to at least continue to hold a grudge about it, even, yes, after 10 whole years.
