Legal "The hacker hordes of Anonymous have transferred their fickle attention to Sony. They are currently attacking the company's online Playstation store in retribution for Sony's lawsuit against PS3 hacker George Hotz. A denial of service attack has temporarily taken down playstation.com."

Legitimate protests might be annoying, but they're annoying within the bounds of the law. These arrogant script kiddies revel in breaking the laws of virtually any country they operate from. They deserve neither reverence nor protection from the consequences of their actions.


If breaking the law is required to get Sony to operate within the law, then so be it. It's not like the US justice system will ever force Sony to adhere to the law.

Then stand up like men and openly accept the consequences. Don't hide behind "Anonymous" like cowardly children with one face while claiming some supposed moral high ground with the other.

Until that happens these kiddies get nothing but contempt and ire.

I think the fact that Sony is now trying to completely ruin Hotz' life is evidence enough as to why anonymity is a given here. Companies like Sony have no qualms about destroying lives if it suits their agenda. Especially in the US, it is dangerous to go into court with a large company on the other side of the aisle - whether you're right or wrong.
