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.

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

Not to me when he claims he isn't and his fans believe him based on his word.

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

Not if the user accepts a service agreement. It's akin to losing your equipment if you are caught cheating in a sports event. Anyone who doesn't want their console bricked can stay offline.
