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 don't believe for one second that Hotz is against piracy.

It's not illegal to be for piracy though and whether he's for or against it is immaterial.

They should just copy MS and charge for online access and scan any console that wants to connect.

Or they could just hire programmers who at least understand the fundamentals of cryptography and they wouldn't have had this problem in the first place.

But I think they should take it a step further and brick any console that has pirated games

That would be illegal for them to do though since the console is not their property anymore.
