Games I've often harped on Apple for its policy regarding jailbreaking, but of course, Apple isn't the only company engaging in such practices. We already talked about Motorola, and now, we have Sony - already a company with a checkered past when it comes to consumer rights. As it turns out, Sony don't want you jailbreaking your their Playstation 3.

"When you buy a PS3, you are *buying* it - you're not renting it. You *own* the thing.

You're free to do anything with your system,
but the entire content distribution ecosystem is not yours. So you're not supposed to break it.
"

Jailbreaking your PS3 changes only the PS3 machine itself, a machine which you own. It does not "break" the content distribution servers which Sony own ... it does precisely nothing to them.
