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.

Right, because God forgive they'd blame Sony for not designing their software properly.

Sony made a mistake in their encryption but Geo made a conscious decision to release software that he knew would be used for piracy and cheating 99.9% of the time. His decision is not justified by Sony's mistake.

Thankfully the lynch-mob is not the preferred means of justice these days.
Maybe taking gaming less serious might be a good idea too.

For millions of PS3 owners there has been a loss of value as a result of the key release. A civil society does not have lynch mobs but also does not ignore widespread devaluation of property.
