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.

So honest people, who bought games/content, will suffer from it


I guess they should complain to Sony about hiring complete nincompoops to design the security.

GeoHot has accepted license what he will not reverse engineer the thing. And that can lead to certain consequences.


Bullshit. Just because it's in the shrinkwrap license does not mean it's valid by contract law. If he bought it he can do whatever he wants with it. Well, at least that's the rule in sane countries.
Funny how Sony gets away scott-free even when their design is fundamentally flawed.

So if for example somebody makes the keys from your home and give it to some random thief. I guess you will be very glad and make that person your best friend.


No but if you're stupid enough to hide your keys under the doormat it's your own fault.

Its a bit more then that, its like buying and using a lock and key system where every key ever made for it has the exact same 4 bumps, you can bring along your own key with 4 bumps and unlock any door in the house.
Not only that, but if you unlock the front door, and show your 4 bump key to the alarm system it'll give you detailed directions to the safe box in the house along with the number combo to open it.
