I don't think I'm getting through to you here, I don't care what their stupid "license agreement" says. The console is MINE, and so is the copy of the software on it.
There seems to be this horrible sense of self-entitlement on this forum. Just because you pay for something doesn't give you free will to do what you want with it.
Its Sony fail for having a root key the same on all systems, but Geohot is fail for releasing it knowing full well that people will pirate video games and blu ray movies, adversely affecting something that we all enjoy.
I don't really care about anyone's opinion, so please don't quote me regarding it. If you quote me, then make sure its objective:
|The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services intended to circumvent measures (commonly known as digital rights management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. It also criminalizes the act of circumventing an access control, whether or not there is actual infringement of copyright itself. In addition, the DMCA heightens the penalties for copyright infringement on the Internet. Passed on October 12, 1998 by a unanimous vote in the United States Senate and signed into law by President Bill Clinton on October 28, 1998, the DMCA amended Title 17 of the United States Code to extend the reach of copyright, while limiting the liability of the providers of on-line services for copyright infringement by their users.|
Again, I hate those that pirate. This isn't even about him wanting to "Install Linux onto his PS3(Why the f^^k would anyone want to, its slow as all hell), but this is about him stroking is fat ass ego...the narcissist..
If this has adverse effects on Sony's business model, then this guy and all constituents are toast..
