Legal "Sony has filed a new document arguing that the legal action against the noted hacker George Hotz should proceed in California. One of the arguments Hotz's legal team made against California's jurisdiction was the lack of a PlayStation Network account, which means he didn't agree to the Terms of Service, but now the company claims to have 'proof' that Hotz did in fact have a PSN account. An interview with a company based in California, and the number of downloads from California, are being used as evidence."

While Apple and Microsoft have done and do things that we might not like, I don't think they have ever sunk so low as to single out and hunt down one of their own users... After this I can't think of a reason why I would ever buy a Sony product.

Well done Sony, you are now the most contemptable tech company around ;)

Well said... I hate Apple and Microsoft, but you're right... neither one tried to directly harm their own customers as far as I can remember.

I always hated Sony too, so this whole legal situation doesn't change much. It just pisses me off more about them and gives me more reasons to slam them and make fun of them over.

LOL. Sony-haters concentration in this post is very high.
Sony does some very nice hardware and it is really stupid
to ignore it just because you hate Sony legal practices.

I don't think Geohot will end up in jail. This is just a sign to others what messing with big corporations business could lead to unpleasant consequencies.
