I posted the SonySuit.com website shortly after I learned of the dangers caused by Sony BMG's XCP Copy Protection (and found that it was the cause of many of the problems with my "school" laptop - including weird crashing during exams). It attracted over 100,000 visitors during the course of the lawsuit, and I think it had a positive impact on moving the class action from "behind closed doors" and "out into the public". Unfortunately, the consumers still didn't get what I consider reasonable compensation for their damages.

Good article, it probably has to be argued though that the benefits of the internet in putting together a class action, in my opinion, far outweigh the drawbacks
