Do you blame the man who invented the sword for the crusades?
What about the people in the Manhattan project with the murder of two entire cities?
Sony is pursuing this in the name of prevent piracy, whet they have no right. Sure, the 'hack' he found can allow piracy, but our society [until now] pursues the one who actually commits the crime, not the one who provides the opportunity to commit the crime [except in some situations].
Exactly. Breaking copyrighted software in order to increase the functionality of a device that you bought with your own money is legal. Sony is just on a power trip.
If the USA has any hope as a nation by the people for the people, this won't stand for long. If, however, Sony ends up the winner at the end of the day, I'll be moving to Mexico.

The Nuclear Bomb's were desired by the U.S. at the time to save their sons that were over sea's, as the Oriental side of the war was looking to take quite some time. Only afterwards did anyone criticize the use of it, but in truth got what they asked for, which was the return of their families.
In hindsight I can understand why the courts would approve of Sony's demands because down the road sony's and the U.S. both want to prevent as much piracy as possible and bolstered its own sales as well as economy.
In all reality 55-60% of ps3 users that know what the ps3 is now capable of will be using the hack, which 40% of those will more than likely be doing everything they can to get free games, or watch free movies. I know some of us here will use the ps3 for the linux functionality, which for I was curious about as well...
