No matter how you base this around the false guise of "piracy is killing everything", the simple truth is Sony is putting all of their resources and work into the wrong thing.

When Sony stumbles onto a massive PS3 game piracy ring -- by all means sue. But a dude who does this as a hobby for fun -- don't be ridiculous. From the rest of your comments it appears you have some in at Sony or monthly stipend. People who actually care about THEIR legally purchased goods don't take it too kindly when companies such as Sony walk all over them as they are doing to Geohot.
What's the point of a modern gaming console if you can't play games on it because there's too many cheats?

And less people care about the "piracy is killing everything" topic than you think. This isn't just about piracy, it's about privacy and the ability to use the console as intended... but you didn't read that far did you? You don't care about the other people that want to use it legitamately, you'd rather an exploit be out there to damage gameplay and create phishing opportunities. Good job!

And Geohot was looking for money by trying to get a job for Sony for this exploit. He then released it publicly when they told him to eff off. And whether or not the DMCA is wrong or not in your eyes, it's still law.

There is a happy medium between taking care of cheaters and catering to the very developer community which keeps the platform moving forward with new innovative features. Sony is just terrible at finding it.

I never said I loved exploits and cheats. Those are your words, not mine. I would like to be able to tinker with a device I purchased from the store and brought into my own domain.

And just because "it's law" doesn't make it right. Where would various countries be if people didn't rebel against bogus laws and push back?

I don't see why so many get butthurt over this. Sony is out of control and so are both sides.

Meh, I'll agree with that.

I was going to say that very same thing, but I didn't really want to start an "Xbox vs. PS3" flame thread. But now that the cat is out of the bag....

PS3's online gameplay is garbage compared to Xbox live. Yet another failure by Sony who care about their bottom dollar first, and the customer second. This same basic principal has been shown many times over the last decade.

With that said, I'd take the PS3's eye candy over the Xbox's mediocre graphics any day -- as what good is a next gen console if it has last gen graphics?. The dilema we must face...

/rant.

Continue on.

I have a feeling that someone would tell you to get off your butt and vote if the laws are not fair (discussing democratically governed nations anyway). However I think that employs too lofty a vision of the legal process in a realistic context. On the one hand, laws mean nothing if not enacted with complete disregard to situational context.

On the other hand, I don't know if I could sanely put that level of jurisdiction within laws when they are forged within a framework that somewhat consistently denies fairness to the people it governs.

When I have feelings that laws are fairly created with non biased interest, I will consider them a valid scale of right and wrong. Until then, my own moral compass and common sense will dictate my actions towards others.

Unfortunately in a case like this, you have only law to go by and that is just how it is.
