History if full of huge corporations that suffered greatly from bad PR and upset consumers. Just having a larger pocket book only buys one more time.

We have a culture where our youth have been accustomed to the word "free" long before facing "DRM" and "Copyright". I'm certain most folks feel that because of file sharing, label companies will treat everyone as suspect, and impose unfair limitations. Sony has managed to justify those fears by shoving this DRM down our throats, sideways. (Even folks on the DRM wagon should be concerned).

Despite the boycott's intention to hurt Sony. I think what is more important is the message that says: anything that even remotely resembles "DRM" is a deal breaker, and we'll take our money elsewhere. Ouch. That hurts.

In response to the questions that come to mind after reading Boyds comments, I am thinking, if I were an artist doing a CD, I might specify to NOT let Sony use this new technology on my CDs. Megadeth and others might love it but the fear of loosing sales will hit the artist who gets the smalle living percentage of the royalties greater.

That is, the artist has to live off that money where Sony can spread that loss over their entire operation if need be. They loose a fraction of a cent over this but the artist who looses a few thousand sales will feel it, if it's not some sort of super hit album anyway.

Hopefully a few outraged, knowledgable musical artists will stand up on this one.

I wasn't thinking good or bad on that, just that after reading Boyd's message, it got me thinking. That's all. Boyd, like so many others here, inspires me to do better and better.
