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.

Well I can say that I no longer purchase products from Sony or Apple. These 2 are the most Draconian heartless companies I have experienced in my lifetime in the tech industry and I actively do my best to convince everyone I know never to purchase their products. When I purchase a piece of hardware its mine. not yours anymore. One can actually get sued for possessing their products in a way they do not agree. I will continue to actively steer people away from those companies as long as they continue to be dickheads.
