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.

Actually you're buying the media and the privilege to read the content using blessed methods on that media alone. If you bought the content, you had the ability to use any means necessary to use the content.

If you break that media, they will be glad to sell you more media...you do not have the privilege to download that content again without paying for the use of the new media...

That's how it was explained to me
