Who's At Fault For Leaving Sony BMG CDs On The Market?
from the questions-questions-questions dept
We've been hearing stories about New York and Texas are investigating or suing Sony BMG over the rootkit CDs -- but the issue in both cases is that the CDs are still on sale at retail outlets, despite Sony BMG's recall of the discs. Of course, one question that hasn't really been addressed is who is responsible for that? Assuming Sony BMG properly issued the recall, then doesn't it become the retailers' responsibility to remove the CDs from the shelves? How much of the fact that these CDs are still on the shelves can be chalked up to retail store owners hoping to cash in on CD sales during the holiday buying period and choosing to ignore the recall?
