Hector Martin, winner of the Xbox Kinect bounty is being sued by Sony. People had some harsh things to say about Microsoft, but they didn’t sue anyone. Hector is getting sued for unlocking the Sony Playstation 3. You can read about it here


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  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.
