I think that is literally the only geohot picture ever used. Anyway, sold returned all my Sony products in support of Mr. Hotz. Take it to em man!"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

Totally agreed!! They don't own the product that we purchase with our hard earned money!

I hope they tear Sony a new one, it's just ridiculous what they're doing! Full support from me Geo, represent JB's well!

Actually, Sony sells PS3s at a $50 loss. So buy buying a PS3, you're actually taking action to bankrupt the company.

Mod your own stuff BUT DON'T RELEASE COPYRIGHTED STUFF AS ITS AGAINST THE T&C's, why do you think other hackers who have hacked the latest firmware 3.60 aren't getting sued because they're not releasing the cfw yet.
Also its SCEA that is suing and not Sony Japan? I hope Geohot wins

Not everything you buy, you own.
In many cases (PS3 included) you may own the hardware, but you do not own the software that came installed on it. It is licensed to you and you are to stay within the boundaries of the license agreement (which you accept by buying the product)
It was nice to see George got a holiday out of all your donation, I hope at least he sent a postcard

But on subject now, Sony is only trying to make an example of geohot. I for one am still sitting on my 3.55 CFW Jailbroken Ps3 and Sony has yet to try to ban/sue/attack me unfairly! And I intend to keep doing whatever I want to my property!

I'm a little confused behind Sony's reasons for suing Geohot. You're just attacking one of the many hackers on the PS3. It can't be for publicity because to me, it makes Sony look like an ***. I wonder if Sony's ever heard of a software update? Kinda like what that small company called Apple does.

I think the issue at hand is whether or not the hacking results in taking revenue from Sony that they otherwise would/could have had.
If the hacks dont lead to lost revenue...Sony has no case.

Good to see hes going at them with a legal team that seems to understand the case. Good luck Geo.

Hacking the system and running UNSIGNED CODE is one thing (which is how the iDevice community operates). Releasing the root keys that are used for SIGNING CODE is an entirely different issue and has the ability to enable a whole lot more maliciousness; this is what this is what this case is all about. The day someone releases those keys for iOS is the day you will see Apple take it's gloves off and go on a full out battle against jail breaking.

In my opinion i agree with you. I think i should be able to do what i want with it, but it's not like in the world of software. We the users do not own software, we are licensed to use it.

Blah blah blah, he broke the EULA and no matter how much we want what he does, its still against the EULA.

When you buy a ps3, yes you own it. The case and hardware. What you do not own is the software. You are simply licensed to use it on your device. It is the same with all software. If you purchase a program for your computer, it's the same. Read any license agreement for any software and it will plainly state that it is illegal to modify it. I am by no means in favor of Sony winning this case. Geohot has an uphill battle on his hands. I, personally, am in favor of modding, but Sony does have a valid case. Especially since Geohot leaked the source code to the public.
