    Sorry guys can't stop buying blu-rays even though Sony invented the technology but I will never buy another one of their tv's or blu-ray players again. Even questioning buying the PS4 when it comes out, or maybe will and donate it to "will it blend?"

    True, but I think if there are enough people that do care (maybe IF this makes better headlines on the news) and stop buying products when they see that four letter word, they will definitely see a dent. Who knows they may be known as the company that likes to sue their customers rather than a company that makes good products in the future.

    I'm a firm believer that lawyers have F'ed this country, if not the world, up. Right and wrong people!!! Ethics!! No one cares anymore. Come on.. It's not all about how much you can get over on someone. Sony is spending so much money just to prove that they are big and bad!! F'em

    its also invasion of privacy for our ip addresses.. this judge is on crack cuz we have right of privacy.. but when judges on crack say yes to this well it breaks that privacy..

    I've stopped buying any products made by Sony, including the USB disks & Memory Cards. I've change my plans to get the TV from Sony to Panasonic. Never I recommend Sony anymore.

    Just thinking an Online Petition would show the amount of support that geo has and it also might make the news if the numbers are high enough, while at the same time showing Sony how big the support is for geo.

    I don't know how effective petitions are in US but here in the UK they carry weight with enough signatures.
    All it will take is someone to put the petition online and then everyone who cares can pass out the link and watch the support roll in plus the news would grab hold of this story.

    Let me know what ya think

    Cheers

    It is 9am here in the UK and after getting up and getting ready for the day I was feeling good. However after reading this article I am feeling physically sick. This is a ******* disgrace. This judge and Sony need a good kick in the ***.

    Never again will I purchase anything Sony, I really do feel like going out to my local Sony centre and tossing a brick through their window. However I will simply purchase my last Sony product, some Sony batteries and take a hammer to them.

    Gehot keep the faith man. I will send whatever cash I can afford.

    Does this mean everyone who has ever donated to Geohot is ******? Will Sony go after them next?

    Good luck to Geohot and I hope he wins this.
    Sony isn't going to sit idly by as Apple idea while someone Yonkers around with their products. The PS3 is a money maker for them (the games) and jailbreaking allows for piracy. Not that everyone does it, but it's enough of a possibility that they want to shut it down.

    Apple isn't as passionate about stopping a jailbreak because jailbreaking actually helps them! (think about all of those iPhones that were unlocked and used on other carriers. Someone still had to buy them initially and reselling allows most folks to go ahead and buy the new device each year. No other phone has a re-sale market like the iPhone.)

    Sony is not to be f*^€ed with. George is screwed. Who of you will actively visit his site and donate to him right now KNOWING Sony is going to get their hands on your IP from his ISP and name etc from paypal?

    Only thing that will hurt Sony has nothing to do with this case (the trouble in Japan) so they are motivated to show the stock market that they are tough on security and help boost confidence. Money is how you hurt a giant like Sony and George doesn't have enough.

    This just keeps getting better and better. I donated a few $$ to Geohot a while ago, so now Sony have my Paypal details too. WTF??

    You guys in the US really need to rally together against this. Write to your congressman or whoever and tell them that this judge is completely off his nut and surely out of his jurisdiction in giving away the privacy of so many people without justification.

    This is beyond ridiculous and I just hope we can get enough publicity to raise the profile of this scam to the level that somebody with some power can step in and do something about it.

I hope not cause if so ima be really pissed with Sony. I've donated to Geo before but for Black/LimeRa1n. So I seriously hope they don't think ok this person donated, he has a email that matches with PSN let's cancel his PSN account!!

    Geo should open this up on his site where we can all go and sign and to show Sony that what there doing here isn't right.

    What are they going to do? Ban your IP? I don't even own a ps3. In fact, I am proud to have no Sony products in the house. My 15 year old college tv finally left my garage, into the landfill for it!
