Methinks they are going to be disappoint in what they don't find.

They're going to want to use him as an example yet they will end up looking like schmucks in the long run.

Didn't he just ask for help? And ask for people to donate to him with Paypal. Most of the stuff that Sony is doing is wrong, But I really hope they Hurt this guy for a long time to come. He knew what he was doing when he uploaded that to the Web. He can say all day long that it wasn't to pirate, But he knew that it would go that way. Hell he gave the keys to the car and now says I didn't do it so you could drive it. BS

Sony isn't suing him for hacking the PS3. Their suing him for distributing the "secret" code that was use to lock it down. Not just the process of hacking it (like jailbreaking an iPhone), but passing out the key code to do it. That's what they're building their case on.

Still, not enough.

Imagine i have a spare car i dont want, and i use it to teach you how to break its window, hot wire it and drive it.

as long as you dont steal any car, you should be able to hot wire and break the window of your own car.

if i want to put the code on my ps3, i should be able to do so.

i shouldnt be able to pirate the games... but i should be able to jailbreak it if i wanted to, i should be able to use any information i learn from jailbreaking and communicate it to others if i wish.

the act of stealing should be ilegal, potentially beeing able to steal is not a crime.

That is ridiculous. Sony is a business, not a charity case. If you had any idea how much work, time, money it takes to design, create, publish, and distribute their content then maybe - just maybe - you might understand the concept of protecting your hard work.

Anyways, going back that far is justifiable because he could have received funds to develop the hack, not just afterwords. I think getting his bank account would be going too far, but paypal seems reasonable.
This. The paypal situation has been a big role in the decision from the beginning, so it isn't "too far" to get their information.

Not to mention, the courts wouldn't let someone go "too far" with anything. Every decision is based on something, it isn't granted just because they requested it. Please, everyone, give up this "corrupt judges" bull. Until you can prove the judges are corrupt, don't bother saying it.

Never mind, apparently it was specifically the act of jailbreaking to allow 3rd party apps to run. Interesting though, couldn't the same thing be said of the Playstation 3?
No. It was specifically for wireless telephone handsets. Plus, Geo didn't just simply "jailbreak". He isn't being sued for "jailbreaking", he went way further.

Apparently being told this, you guys just ignore it so you can go around saying $ony.

His crime when he is jail breaking, is that hes unlawfully distributing Sony software.

So in case you didn't understand, his crime is: unlawful distribution of copyrighted software.

Just another log for the Sony hate fire. This is ridiculous, and I hope the company is severely punished by any and all means available.

If it was such a big deal, maybe sony would have bothered to hire someone competent to create their security system.
