Yahoo! Finance: Texas Expands Lawsuit Against Sony BMG. This is the sound of another shoe dropping, from what at this point appears to be a herd of well shod lawyers. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has decided, along with suits filed in Oklahoma, the District of Columbia, and California (the latter by the EFF), that Sony BMG’s other DRM scheme, MediaMax, also violates Texas’s anti-spyware and deceptive trade practices laws.
Sony BMG says that because they have provided a software update to address the problem, that they have “completely addressed” Abbott’s concerns. It is not clear what remedy they intend to provide customers who declined to accept the installation but got the MediaMax software installed anyway.
