[TS] PlayStation 3 hacking lawsuit delayed already

Sony's legal attacks against the hackers that released the PlayStation 3 root key and custom firmware have hit a snag. San Francisco District Court Judge Susan Illston does not agree with Sony's argument that California courts have jurisdiction due to the use of a Paypal account and George Hotz, also known as GeoHot, agreeing to the Terms of Service on the PlayStation Network. As a result, the ruling on where the case should be tried has been pushed back, and there is no time frame for a decision.

"If having a PayPal account were enough [for California to have jurisdiction], then there would be personal jurisdiction in this court over everybody, and that just can't be right," Illston said, according to GamesIndustry. "That would mean the entire universe is subject to my jurisdiction, and that's a really hard concept for me to accept." She suggested that the case might need to be tried in New Jersey, Hotz's home state and where he actually committed the hack.

Basically Sony is suing Hotz in the wrong state.

Sony brought a lawsuit to Geohot, Sony sueing Clearwire.

Is there anybody Sony hasnt brought to court lo

i wonder what the laws are in Jersey pertaining to the lawsuit.
Either sony is scared to bring the suit to Jersey because the law is too laxed or its probably because they have more leverage in Cali.

^lol.

"Go to Jersey, you can't sue him here"
post #6 of 17
i made this argument when reading the original lawsuit. it was page 11 or 12 if i remember correctly. just didn't seem right to claim jurisdiction
post #7 of 17
they supposedly claimed it because he used youtube and paypal, well he didn't use paypal but sony sent him $1. They said since those places are located in ca that is why they claimed jurisdiction and then of course the judge was like "if thats the case then the whole universe is in my jurisdiction".
