As a legal major, I looked through the lawsuit and it is bullshit. They say the federal goverment can remove the tools because distribution on the interbutts is "interstate comerse". They're free tools so now.
Also, apparently George saying "If you want your next console to be secure, call me" is extortion. They claim he was "extorting their intellectual property for employement". Where in his statement does it say he wants a job?
Theres many more things wrong with this case, and I dont have room to say it all-
i think no 1 reading long comments well its nothing new i think

"Blackmail is the act of threatening to reveal substantially true information about a person to the public, a family member, or associates unless a demand is met." Where in there did he threaten to release information unless they hired him? The information was released on the same page that the statement was written, and it was all posted at once. It wasn't "Oh $ony, btw, hire me or I'm releasing your metldr keys."
"Extortion, outwresting, and/or exaction is a criminal offense which occurs when a person unlawfully obtains either money, property or services from a person(s), entity, or institution, through coercion." Doesn't really sound like he's extorting them either. He once again didn't say give me a job or I'm releasing metldr keys.
We buy the consoles. We pay the money to have them. I'll be damned if I'll let some giant corporation try and tell me what I can and cannot do with a piece of hardware that I purchased with my own money. If I want to run homebrew on them I should be allowed to.
And lol@massive dents in income. Sure, this may open the door to piracy, but truth be told, most of the masses want this for homebrew and Linux.. And homebrew, last time I checked, won't cut into $ony's profits, nor will Linux. If anything this will make more people want to start buying more ps3's because of homebrew, and because you'll be able to run Linux on it again.
Im just saying but maybe sony would have been nicer if failoverflow and all you hackers didnt go on and say the following:
"sony sucks at security"
"haha yeah, sony suck, take that!"
honestly, we cnt get banned 4 doing homebrew, i hope i dont anyway. there's always a nice way of approaching corporate giants.
Holy shit, ever read more than my post on this site?

Emulators? WE HAVE ALL SEEN THEM, who the **** cares if I can now play snes games on my ps3, not just my wii, my 360, my psp, my ds and my phone.
Other emulators? they are either done on the PC or impossible here.
Nobody gives a **** about homebrew, theres a tiny tiny tiny tiny amount of people who want otherOS, the rest doesn't give a shit, they don't even know what the **** OS means.
Piracy does make a huge dent in profits, and opening a console leads to piracy 101 times out of a hundred. Its not like I care very much for sony, but its ridiculous how butthurt the people in this scene are.
None of these lawsuits will lead to anything, but acting like Sony is the bad guy for trying to defend hes shit is just ****ing ridiculous.
we bought the machine now we own it and shoul;d beable to do what we want with it,
Sony has been a dick of a company for DECADES now. The Sony hate is DESERVED. Their product design team obviously deserves praise but otherwise they have been a horrible company (especially how they treat the customer). I thought when OtherOS was around that maybe Sony turned over a new leaf but apparently I was sorely wrong. They will likely lose and this will set yet another precedent for free speech in computing.
