[ArsTech] PS3 jailbreaker claims Sony is misleading the courts

post #1 of 39

It has been a while since the court battle between Sony and George Hotz began, and both sides are still arguing about what state has jurisdiction in the case. Sony argued that Hotz's use of the PlayStation 3 SDK created a relationship between Sony and Hotz, and that since Sony Computer Entertainment of America is located in California, that's where the case should be heard. Now Hotz and his legal team are arguing that the SDK is owned by Sony Computer Entertainment of Japan, saying that Sony is dragging its feet to prove otherwise.

The case may come down to some fine wording in the SDK's documentation and code, but there's also the question of how much access Sony should have to Hotz's hard drives, and what they're allowed to look for. All this hinges on whether Sony's argument about the use of the SDK would lead a reasonable person to understand they were dealing with a party in California, and Sony seems to be playing games in dealing with the other side of the case.

I reckon, once this is over people will just think that it's not a big deal. Whatever happens to Hotz would probably end up with him doing exactly the same thing to the NGP (for example). This is Sony's case, I don't mind what happens as long as I can play the exclusive games that I've purchased on PS3.

OMG I hope they don't extradite him to Japan, that could mean very bad things...

Something tells me Sony is going to lose this case outright...

you cannot break any Japanese laws outside of Japan if you are not a citizen of Japan, I thought...? isn't that how extradition works?

American jail is a damn holiday inn compared to Japanese jails. You have 0 rights in Japanese jail. You can't even sleep when you want to, they kick you awake. They can hold you for 45 days without having to notify anyone. I have a few friends who have gotten DUI's over here and they are still there.

I hate to see big companies get away with anything let alone the crap they have been pulling.

One can only hope the judge throws it out. They all look like damn fools at his point.

Lol, loving how Geo is potentially only screwing HIMSELF by pointing out that Sony Japan should be the one fighting him. If that's what he wants, I hope that's what he gets. It was kind of pointless bringing that up though because he committed the crime within the US. Sony California is still Sony and so long as they do have authorized control of Sony software they can take action themselves.

US prisons really are a joke compared to prisons in other countries. US prisons are covered by billions of our tax dollars to make sure every prisoner has a cozy cell with 3 warm meals a day. It's ridiculous, really, but there's no other way to get the funding for it. Either kill every prisoner (not going to happen in the US) or house them in a prison with tax money. That aside, I don't think Geo would be going to PRISON over this. He's more likely to be paying off his crime for the rest of his life than to be imprisoned.
