No, now you are changing your words. "Jail breaking" is not "jailbreaking". If courts want to use it, fine. But there is a difference between the two. "Rooting" is the technical term for doing this to any electronic device. Jailbreaking is specifically for Apple devices, at least it was until people started using it in other ways. Anyway, he is being sued not for "jailbreaking", but distributing proprietary code. Get your facts right. Your argument is all of the place. Sony has every single right in the world to sue him and win if he used their code. He broke laws. The hackers who are screwing with sony's servers broke laws. Sony is the only one is this (unless geo is found innocent) who hasn't broken laws.
AND, very few people who root their PS3's are doing it to satisfy their need to run homebrew linux on it. They are doing it to play any game they want for free. That is the problem.

Note to most of the people here:
Sony are not suing George Hotz because he jailbroke PS3 and told others how to do it.
He is being sued because he copied and distributed something that did not belong to him....oh whats that called....oh ya...piracy. The very thing he claims to be against.
No one, except Sony, owns any part of the Playstation 3 Firmware.

From what I read Sony is just "RENTING" those domains, LMFAO!
Stand for something, or fall for everything! If u ain't with us, ur against us. Choose freedom or be enslaved forever. Corporate c#%ks+=kers be forewarned, once u sell something IT IS NO LONGER YOURS! Void warranty, that's your prerogative & your right but stay out of MY BUSINESS! Keep sticking your tiny d%#ks in the bees nest but don't complain when u get stung! BZZZZZZZZ, BZZZZZZZZZZ, 1, 2, Freddies coming for you!

Why do people bother defending Sony?
Sony make viruses that slow down peoples computers and open up back doors, now tell me what part of that is legal?

1. if I say Jail breaking and jailbreaking to anyone in the iPhone community...the point is understood and the definition is understood. The space is redundant and meaningless...but I will (for your sake) use jailbreaking and not put the space.
2. iPhone jailbreaking leads to piracy as well. Can anyone say ********** 4? Not to say that I use **********, as I am a software developer myself and my own moral prejudices against piracy are mine alone to know.
3. Chances are...YOU have a jailbroken iDevice and directly benefiting from the work of Geohot, or others like him. Can anyone say hypocrite?
4. You are on a web forum that propagates tutorials and support for jailbreaking...yet speak out against the methods employed by jailbreakers.
Do you have ANY idea how stupid and ignorant you sound (look)?
If you support Sony...than you are NO LONGER allowed to own any jailbroken iDevice (less you look like a total hypocrite), or use any console modification released from now to kingdom come. Enjoy your stock devices buddy. Sony stands for the concept of oppressing our right to do what we wish with things we buy! If we buy a car outright (say a Toyota)...does Toyota have the right to tell us what we can, and cannot do, with that car? No they don't. One you buy it, it belongs to you. The legal exchange of goods has been processed and stands for all time.
As far as I am concerned, you are an enemy of Geohot and everything he stands for, because you certainly are not helping him.
As for Anonymous...I hope your the next person they target.

Don't agree with Sony and DEFINITELY do not agree with the Anonymous. IMO they just watched too much Death Note and want to cause trouble... Their reasons are 100% legit and I back it up... but their methods are not what I think the best way to go about...
