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.

If you haven't agreed to anything, how can they prevent you from modifying the device. Probably, they can't.

The article states that they prevented distribution of third party addition. So, they do not target the owners who bought the device, and there is no reason to complain about it.

The article is incomplete, because there is no explanation what was the legal basis for preventing the distribution of third party addition.
