Legal "Sony has won its request for a temporary restraining order in its PS3 jailbreak case against Geohot and fail0verflow, despite a jurisdictional technicality. At the same time, the judge at the US District Court for the Northern District of California has allowed Sony to keep the lawsuit in San Francisco. The restraining order forbids the jailbreak team from distributing or linking the jailbreak procedure, or encouraging others to jailbreak or hack their PS3 or PSN. They've also been ordered to turn over any computers or storage media used to create the jailbreak to Sony's lawyers." Land of the free fail.

Ok, so I have a question. Lets say I buy a washing machine and I think "Hey, this washing machine is really bitchin', but you know what would make it even more bitchin' ? If I replace the motor with a Chevy smallblock!". Then lets say I release the schematics I used to do the job. What is the worst thing that will happen to me, I'll void my warranty? Why should the punishment be any greater for hacking "your own" PS3 and maybe also telling others how to do it? Forgive my language, but if the US gov't and Sony are reading this: f--k you!
