  1. I find it amusing that they are accused of bypassing an “effective technological measure”. I would think that if it was effective it wouldn’t be possible to bypass. 🙂

  2. He’s not actually being “sued” – from Engadget:

    “This isn’t a “lawsuit” in the traditional sense, since Sony hasn’t filed a complaint for copyright infringement or whatever against Geohot and friends. Instead, the company appears to be trying to shove the genie back in the bottle and have the jailbreak and any information about the jailbreak removed from the web by filing a temporary restraining order.”

  3. I lol at Sony. This sounds like the lawsuit Microsoft threatened Adafruit for the Kinect prize.

    Grats to Hector for allowing users to use their ps3s

  4. Very disappointing Sony. Poor Sports.

  5. I’m sure the EFF would help represent him, and have him removed from the suit, since the DMCA and copyright law does not apply to foreigners.
