huh - nice way to mis-interpret what I said - try it graphicly for ya:Originally posted by prisoner1138
how are modchips at the end of a chain of items sony supplies? modchips arent on the chain at all as sony does not manufacture or distribute them.
Sony PS2 - Sony Original Game + Sony Burner + Sony Blank Media + software supplied with burner by sony that allows Cd to Cd copies = Pirated game...
Then take Pirated game - purely created and supported by Sony items sold legaly, making them huge profits, add mod chip to PS2 = sudden ability to play pirated game...
Take all sony items out of this long chain except for the first 2 and hey wow - no pirating assistance... is that clear enough now? or do I need to explain further??
Never said that sony supplied the chips...!
Also Swap trick - equals exact same chain of Sony devices - no chip required so by your resoning Sony should sue itself!
As to the discliamer - derrr! my point exactly - you must have missed that as well!
look through any manual from sony that comes with a potentially infringing device - they will include a disclaimer - and in the eyes of the law this is ok...
If we do the same - it is chucked out in court and we get our butts kicked anyway.
And lastly you seemed to miss the whole point of this thread!!!
"Yet another rant" - do you know what a rant is??
Typically means some one has a beef with someone else or somthing else and just goes off. The big picture and reality hardly ever has a stearing effect on a good rant!
Don't slap me with your reality and I wont hit you with mine!!
I said my piece, had my rant - feel free to do the same! logic and reality need not be brought into such things!!
