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.

I think a lot of this case is just Sony being a bully because their system was so easily hacked.

Whether its wrong or not, well that's simple to me.

If you buy a car and then decided to modify it, maybe replace some major parts and change the look and performance of the car and then show others what you have done and tell them how you did it. Do the motor companies have any legal right to stop you even if it makes them look bad because you used some competitors parts and said their parts were junk.

Does the government have any right to hold you liable if somebody else uses your provided info to the then change their car and break the speed limit.

I don't think so. If this was the case then "Top Gear" would not exists. As far as I am concerned if I bought some hardware I can do what every I want with it, even if that is to smash it into 100 little bits to use in a "I hate Sony poster".

Personally I don't hate Sony but I don't buy any of there products any more and on a side note, I think just as much of Apple inc. and my opinion of the companies has nothing to do with the products these companies produce.[i][/i]
