Round #2 : Sony of Australia vs. PSJailBreak Resellers
Round #2 : Sony of Australia vs. PSJailBreak Resellers –
Beginning in a few minutes, over in Aussie-land, the second big court room battle will be starting, with the Honorable Judge Kenny presiding.
The hearing is in regard the currently active "injunction" set by an earlier court date, were Honorable Judge Dodds-Streeton gave Sony until this deadline (Aug. 31st, 10:15am) against the sale or import or marketing of any USB devices being marketed as PSJAILBREAK or with the said "functions" that unlock your PS3 to allow "homebrew" and "backup of original games".
Sony has to either extend the "injunction" or prove the PSJAILBREAK does in fact contain "copyrighted Sony information", otherwise resellers in Australia will began selling these devices right away.
This battle will be heavy watched around the world by both the media, game developers, and normal gamers, and homebrew authors, and it's outcome will decide the possible fate of the original PSJAILBREAK and now it's many possible "clones" around the world, on how it's marketed and sold.
This posting will be updated with live feeds on the outcome or status from the parties involved in this court action.

PS Jailbreak Compatibility:
Looking for any PS3 firmware, see here:
btw has anyone gotten their refunds yet?
i aksed for a refund the day before they even revealed that Sony was bringing them to court and they said ASAP and yet i havn't gotten it yet.
the hearing is about the start )10:06 in au)
Is anyone filming them? I want to see it!
GO OZMODCHIPS, and the rest (Not Sony)
watching the wire and checking on court cases....great monday night entertainment
ozmods for the win if not we going to have to reverse engineer the courtcase!
I would be very surprised if a verdict gets passed today, more than likely Sony will ask for more time to study the device as they still haven't got a sample from ozmodchips.
I wish I was there, I bring in a live spy camera, and interface to the site, but then I sure the server would not be able to handle the traffic load!

so where are all the watchers from tonight?
Leicester England here.
They may not have gotten one from ozmodchips, but there is two other resellers named, and their is already a sworn affidavit filed during the first hearing, which means that person most likely had one to begin with.
