Legal And so Sony's crusade against Playstation 3 hacker George "Geohot" Hotz continues. After Sony getting all of Geohot's computers and access to server logs and personal details from many of his websites and social media accounts, Sony has now been given access to Geohot's PayPal account, and all information within it - including of the people he has had financial dealings with.

Sony is looking for evidence that people tied to piracy paid him to before or after the hack was published, even though it is not required for DMCA.

Why is it a good thing? Because I think it shows Sony knows the other OS is a legitimate defence. Without additional evidence to show that he published the hack for the purpose of violating copyright, they are up a creek.
