Games I've often harped on Apple for its policy regarding jailbreaking, but of course, Apple isn't the only company engaging in such practices. We already talked about Motorola, and now, we have Sony - already a company with a checkered past when it comes to consumer rights. As it turns out, Sony don't want you jailbreaking your their Playstation 3.

And here's an interesting scenario. Lots of threads in this story have ended with some variation of "you own the device but not the service". Personally, I think the Playstation market plain sucks, about the only aspect of PSN I use is the game hosting. So, would it be illegal for another company to provide an alternative to PSN? I'm sure the terms of service would say so, but ToS aren't laws, and if you aren't using their service, what do their terms matter?
