According to 01-Net a French computer industry magazine, PointDev a maker of Windows administration software just filed a lawsuit against Sony BMG Music Entertainment asking for about USD 450,000.00 in damages.
Sony got caught red handed after one of their employees naively called PointDev technical support. When asked for the license number, the employee gave what it didn't know was a crack number that was furthermore signed "TAM/CORE" by the cracker.
Subsequently 4 illegal server installations have been seized in Sony BMG premises; not surprisingly Sony BMG didn't return the magazine calls.
Interestingly enough the crack number had been generated at the end of 2004, date at which Sony Music and BMG (Bertelsmann) were merging some of their operations into Sony BMG a 50/50 joint venture. And guess what: the pirated software was called "Ideal migration". Almost but not quite.
Why don't we call it a major Digital Right Mishap?
