Free music downloads and cash refunds could soon be offered to owners of Sony BMG CDs loaded with controversial anti-piracy software.

The offers are part of a proposed settlement of lawsuits against Sony BMG over the use of software aimed at thwarting illegal copying of CDs.

The programs used left consumers open to attack from viruses that hijacked the music maker's software.

The proposed deal also forces Sony to stop using the controversial software.

Couldn't happen to nicer folks. :rolleyes: Sony has shafted me on several pieces of defective hardware in the past, nice to see them get theirs. :)
