    Cool your jets, bro - I found the uninstall program for XCP (the kit that installs itself on your PC when using certain Sony CDs and is used to hide the offending $sys$ files - and it told me no such software was on my machine. And I've downloaded about 70 tracks from Connect!

    From all I've read on this, it appears that this has only been used on CD's in the US so far. The EU seems safe for now.
