Sony yesterday filed a restraining order against well-known iPhone hacker George Hotz, known as "Geohot," and other individuals for allegedly bypassing "effective technological protective measures" in PlayStation 3 firmware version 3.55.
Sony uses "flawed security"

it's not very effective.

Sony uses "restraining order"

Sony lashes out in blind rage after having been made to look a fool.

It's actually pretty straightforward, as far as these things go -- Sony alleges that George Hotz, Hector Martin Cantero, Sven Peter, and the rest of fail0verflow are:

--Violating 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which forbids bypassing access control measures;
--Violating the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which forbids accessing computers without authorization;
--Guilty of contributory copyright infringement for encouraging and helping others to crack PS3s as well;
--Violating the California Computer Crime Law, which is the state computer fraud act (think of this as a backup fraud claim);
--Violating the PlayStation Network's Terms of Service (which feels meaningless, really);
Interfering with Sony's relationships with other PSN customers (also meaningless);
--Trespassing on Sony's ownership right to the PS3 (this one feels weak) and;
--Misappropriating Sony's intellectual property (another weak argument, but there in case the copyright argument fails).

Sony's asking the court to forbid Geohot and fail0verflow from distributing the jailbreak and turn over all computer hardware and software that contain the jailbreak code, as well as unspecified damages and attorneys' fees. Yep, these boys done got sued -- and we're sure there'll be some serious fireworks once they lawyer up and fight right back.

don't forget sony thinks geohot was extorting them for a job because he told them they should give him a call so he could fix their security issues

I don't think it's at all surprising the he got sued. The real question is will they win their lawsuit. Is it probably more realistic that he'll settle out of court rather than fight this thing through to the lose?

Mirror of GeoHot's PS3 Jailbreak
January 11, 2011:

Our friends at Sony are having another bad day: i.e., doing something breathtakingly stupid, presumably because they don't know any better. This time they're suing George Hotz for publishing PS3 jailbreak information, as reported by EnGadget, Attack of the Fan Boy, and inevitably, Slashdot. Hotz's jailbreak allows PS3 owners to run the software of their choice on a machine they have legally purchased. His site is geohot.com.

Free speech (and free computing) rights exist only for those determined to exercise them. Trying to suppress those rights in the Internet age is like spitting in the wind.

We will help our friends at Sony understand this by mirroring the geohot jailbreak files at Carnegie Mellon.

Note to Sony lawyers: no doubt you're eager to rack up another billable hour by sending legal threats to me and my university. Before you go down that unhappy road, check out what happened the last time a large corporation tried to stop the mirroring of technical information here: The Gallery of CSS Descramblers. Have you learned anything in ten years?

A reader points out that jailbreaking the iPhone is legal in the US thanks to the efforts of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. What bearing this has on the PS3 controversy remains to be seen.
