Extended Copy Protection

In November 2005, it was revealed that Sony was distributing albums with Extended Copy Protection, a controversial feature that automatically installed rootkit software on any Microsoft Windows machine upon insertion of the disc. In addition to preventing the CD's contents from being copied, it was also revealed that the software reported the users' listening habits back to Sony and also exposed the computer to malicious attacks that exploited insecure features of the rootkit software. Though Sony initially refused to release a list of the affected CDs, the Electronic Frontier Foundation identified Unwritten as one of the discs with the invasive software. However, the DualDisc release does not contain such software.
