The EFF wants you to come forward to see if you are eligible to receive free music and/or cash

If you were one of the many consumers that purchased a Sony BMG CD that had XCP or MediaMax copy protection on it, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) wants you to come forward to see what type of compensation you will receive.  If you think you may be a victim of one of the company's rootkit CDs, the EFF also has a site that explains how to submit a claim, view a list of affected CDs and a description of benefits. 

It's time for music fans who bought Sony BMG CDs loaded with harmful XCP or MediaMax copy protection to claim their settlement benefits: clean versions of the music, plus (in many cases) additional downloads and cash. Submitting a claim not only gets fans music that will play on their computers without restriction or security risk, it lets Sony BMG know that consumers care about this issue.

At the minimum, a replacement CD or access to free downloads of the content on the CD are available to qualified parties.

Unfortunately, this will not deter Sony or Warner or any other big label from treating us like criminals. This will eventually put more copy-protection, which will be broke by the ones break the law, which means the only ones who lose are the ones who don't break the law.

And why do the labels think everybody uses Windows? They never include support for Mac or Linux.
