yes159: Graf's house really was raided. It was the police AND Sony sent some specialists along to point out the 'evidence'. This was reported to the scene several months ago. The civil liberties I'm talking about are in regards to having Graf's stuff confiscated twice.
As for hacking etc, that's a gray law. One of the reasons Sony was willing to settle out with Geo is because it occurred to them that if they lost they would basically be handing the right to hack stuff we the people own. They knew they did the case wrong and that it was full of holes. Geo settling out simply prolonged the argument that we don't own our machine, they're just licensed to us at a huge fee and we have to pay a huge fee for repairs. It wasn't just about the PS3. Sadly another chance like Geo's wont come along again. Geo had the chance to go down in history, but he forfeited it because it would have been hard.
We are at and age where we must decide to do what is right, or to do what is easy. Geo did what was easy. We'll all pay the price for it.
Never confuse heroism with simple self interest.
You must first be illusioned, before you can be disillusioned.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
