Your hysterical geek news of the day.

Only true geeks will appreciate the jaw-dropping irony of this:

An anonymous reader writes "With some help from Sabre Security, Sebastian Porst and Matti Nikki have identified some stolen GPL'd code in Sony's [notorious digital rights management] rootkit. Ironically the code in question seems to be VLC's demux/mp4/drms.c -- the de-DRMS code which circumvents Apple's DRM, written by 'DVD' Jon Lech Johansen and Sam Hocevar."

Sorry, the rest of you are just going to have to look puzzled.
