Sony DRM and Rootkits

As Mark Russinovich discovered, Sony is now stooping to the level of using rootkit techniques to keep customers from copying its music. Considering the amount of damage that they could do to a computer system with this kind of software, I think they are opening themselves up to a serious liability issue, especially since the software is uninstallable. How far is too far? This is over the line in my opinion.
