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.

When you buy certain things you dont actually "own" it in the true sense of the word.

When I buy software in a shop, the vendor doesn't ask me to agree with the EULA or show me said EULA before taking my money.

I discover the EULA when I get back home and put the CD/DVD in my drive. If, at this point, I refuse to accept the EULA, the shop won't take my copy of the software and give me my money back.

Therefore, as far as I'm concerned, EULAs are invalid for every software that is sold in a shop ;)
