I don't agree with sony on this . What geohot did , bought a system and modified it , is no different than buying a car and modifiing it . Now what if the car manufactures came after everone that buys a base model and modifed it to there liking ? Esenually you've cut them out of the loop by moding it yourself. Same as GeoHot .

I wonder why car manufacturers don't go after people or companies who provide(via the internet) tutorials,information and tools to do car E.C.U.(computer) modding. After all these kinds of tools and information allow for removal of rev limiters and governors that prevent you from surpassing 100 mph. Truth be told these are some restrictions that are placed on cars to prevent things. Just the same way the ps3 is locked down to prevent certain things from being done.
This is the closest thing I can compare this sony lawsuit with. The best means by which I can prove geohot's innocence.

Hmmm. This site is called Mod-my-i right? Thought i would have seen more people in support of Geo, since he mods electronics and all.
What Geo did was illegal (no doubt about it) and Sony does have the right to see that he somehow compensates them for this. However, Geo's intentions were not malicious, and SONY is still devoting their limitless resources to DESTROYING him; in my opinion, this punishment doesnt fit the crime. For their methods, i believe SONY deserves an aggressive kick or two to the nuts. If Anon. changes their methods to doing a few things here-and-there to annoy SONY (only to push back, and in ways that do not affect the consumers) then i can get behind them 100%. I think both parties are going "over the top" and are using terror and fear to get an outcome in their favor. Where's the fair middle ground? Sad that Geo is caught in the crossfire.

I say power to the people, we will no longer be suppressed by corporations and their arsenal of lawyers! POWER TO THE PEOPLE! we pay money for a product that makes it ours to do as we please.

You guys should really be careful what you say. Anonymous is far from a group of "dorks in their mom's basement".
They've already taken down a federally funded Internet security CEO and have even hacked President Obama's personal email.
Do you really think they're worried about what Sony will do to them?
Geohot is like a little kid compared to what Anon guys are capable of. They are very terrifying individuals and they can really destroy someone once they take aim.
