    And no, I am not confused, because the term "jail breaking" is being used in the court case. See, the funny thing with law, is that terminology is everything.

    And hacking game consoles was never declared illegal either...but jail breaking WAS declared legal. Sony is using the term jail breaking, so based on terminology...they are filing a lawsuit for something that is legal.

    As such...Sony is in the wrong, legally speaking. Common sense as a consumer also tells me they are wrong because it is a massive company bullying a single consumer.

    I think...YOU are confused...and YOU are uneducated in the content matter.

    In the broadest sense, jail breaking simply allows the use of unsigned code. As with any modification to any retail electronics consumer device, running unsigned code can be TERMED jail breaking, simply based on the definition set out by congress. At the least, the term jail breaking is a comfortable euphemism for "hacking your device"...although the term is more widely adopted by the iPhone community. Strictly based on definition, it can be applied to any electronic device that has been altered to run unsigned code.

    so...Geohot is being sued for jailbreaking a PS3...

    Jalbreaking is legal...

    Sony is Wrong...

    Anonymous is making Sony pay the piper.

    You are wrong Mr. Undercover Moderator...
    Really? Last I checked, Jihad was a terrorist group, not some religion. I also gave you the benefit of the doubt by saying unless you meant the actual meaning of the word, which is "Struggle".

    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.

    On that note...I agree with you 100%. And if you really think about it, jailbreaking an idevice allows you to pirate apps as well. So issues involved with hacking the ps3 aren't different than jailbreaking an idevice.

    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.

    Technically, they are not hackers. Denial of service attacks can be easily preformed. they are just illegal.

    I'm pretty sure Sony regulating a product they no longer own once a consumer buys it is illegal.

    No, it's not. You "sign" an agreement when you use it. It's with that bunch of papers that nobody every reads.

    Sony can do whatever they want with THEIR software, you're not obligated to upgrade your hardware with THEIR software

When you buy any device you should be able to do with it as you please. Geo did not do what he did for playing games for free. He was very clear about that. Sony is just pissed that others have used it to play their games for free and they don't want another psp fiasco. Annonymous is just making a statement and to disrupt you from you online game for a couple of days or hours is not such a big deal. If you can't get off your ps3 for a couple of days then maybe you should re-examine your life and see if you can find something to do in your spare time than play ps3 all day long. Seriously, keep your on sony big brother and support the little guys here.

    So your standing up to this anti-consumer business? And even so, once I buy a product, I should be able to do whatever I want to it. If there comes a day where jailbreaking becomes illegal, I won't give a f/u/ck what they tell me to do. I'll do whatever the f/u/ck I want, thank you, Mr. Jobs.

    Again, the case is about him releasing proprietary code, not about him hacking his ps3. Sigh...

    You are obligated to use the software once the "Other OS" feature is removed. And the only way to get that back is to modify the existing stock software.

    Jihad is not a terrorist group you ignoramus. It is a personal struggle with oneself.

    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...

    Honestly why bring religion into this...? Don't be an ignorant ***... Understand the meaning of the name then talk about it or don't comment on it like you know what it means... PS last I checked there is NO terrorist group called Jihad... care to link me to such info...? How pathetic are people these days...

    Hahaha yep, this started about 2 days ago! But you must understand that people wan revenge on Sony, after all it's the ps3 enthusiasts that spend their time modifying their ps3 that tell everyone else "the ps3 is the greatest thing ever, get one!"
    I for one am still on my jailbroken 3.55 ps3 and I'm getting ready to buy an xBox just because sony has driven me off with their terrible business practices!
