Re: PR own goal
It's actually a lot worse than that.
"we need to insist that the account holder take full responsibility for their account security"
So, if I open an account with Sony they will insist that I inspect the security of the data and it's processing and be in a position to insist they rectify any flaws that I identify.
Now, for most people that would probably be a fairly daunting prospect - but since it's part of what I do for a living I reckon I could make the effort to ensure my account is secure.
@El Reg - please do provide the contact details for whomever at Sony uttered this bizarre statement and a CC address for yourselves and I will happily act as your stalking horse. It's time that these corporate arseholes learnt that T's & C's do not trump rights and laws.
