Legal "Sony has won its request for a temporary restraining order in its PS3 jailbreak case against Geohot and fail0verflow, despite a jurisdictional technicality. At the same time, the judge at the US District Court for the Northern District of California has allowed Sony to keep the lawsuit in San Francisco. The restraining order forbids the jailbreak team from distributing or linking the jailbreak procedure, or encouraging others to jailbreak or hack their PS3 or PSN. They've also been ordered to turn over any computers or storage media used to create the jailbreak to Sony's lawyers." Land of the free fail.

Sony is currently trying to ride the 'open' Zeitgeist by buddying up with people like the World Wildlife Fund:

I suggest people identify similar initiatives and start asking awkward questions of such Sony partners as the WWF. As much as I once admired the WWF, they will now no longer get my support until they drop such backing.

It ain't much, but it's something
