We're going with "this argument is a fallacious sophistry, the prosecution will shoot this down even without the judge's help."

i would if i could be bothered to decipher all the legal jargon. plus i have a life and i dont want to waste what i've got left, reading about what we cant do to something which is legally ours.
if the likes of sony get their way and win cases like this, then who's to say where it will all end. before long, we will not own anything, we will be renting it off the likes of sony.
to cut the long story short, sony and other corporations just want to rule our lives, by demanding that we MUST use their products for the mannor that they were intended for. im sorry to inform them, but it's only human nature to dismantle things, to see how they work and try and to make them better. otherwise, we would still be driving around in model T Ford cars and computers would still be made up of tubes and valves. common sony etc, it's called the "industrial evolution".

This is great to hear.
$ony are so big and think they are the law. They arn't and need a good kicking down to size.
I think everyone should boycott $ony so they finally realise they arnt the law and they arnt as big as they think.
I'm never going to buy anything $ony again after the way they've treated me like a criminal and I'm not. They are actually forcing me to piracy. Not a good move $ony.
I hope it gets thrown out of court so they loose all their money. they deserve it as they have too much as this stupid lawsuit proves it.

I don't get it. I have yet to see sony sue anyone on the psp scene. They have gotten up to they point were they can sign programs to run on OFW on 6.20FW.

Smoking pot is illegal.... Yet creating and even selling the tools to smoke it are completely legal; pipes, bongs etc... SONY please tell me the difference.
made a hack(a bowl)
then gave the hack away(free pipes for everyone)
it was for installing homebrew(smoking tobacco)
some people used it for illegal gaming(they smoked pot, o my)
I don't even smoke but thought it was a decent analogy...

Sony is attacking GeoHot for releasing his info online so that others could do the same to theirs. I don't agree with it at all!!! But the I bought it, it's mine theory doesn't apply to /this/ lawsuit.

If he wins the case he should change the name of his exploit to " IT'sonLyRAIN"

I sure hope Geo wins.... I think he will and if he does then maybe this can all come to a stop!

Anyways, I'm glad to see Geohot and his lawyers finally gain some ground. Hopefully this will help them win the case, not just for him, but for all jailbreakers out there. In the meantime, I'm still continuing my full-on, albeit meaningless, boycott of Sony. It's a shame they had to go full on apeshit because I was just starting to enjoy my jailbroken PS3. Looks like no PS4 for me.

Modding and customizing make products better in the long run, it opens windows others may have over looked. It brings new ideas, and expands the use of products. Sony just has something stuck up their *** because Geo, out smarted them.

Geohotz needs a better lawyer... Too bad Johnny Cochran past away or else he would counter-suit Sony for wasting Geohotz's time.
