I live in Sweden and I've never even heard of those stores mentioned in the article. The biggest one I know of, psxcare, is still selling.

PAL PS2 v.3 - 300GB HDD - FMCB 1.8
As the update is so new & the launch is so close, I doubt they would have time to unbox them all. They are almost certainly in the supply chain by now. Most people won't want to stay on 3.41 anyway.

for sure I cant see whats the problem here no has even got to buy it yet and sonys starting shit lol thats their motif you find a hole in thier security and they sue you for it as if. well sony cant sue opensource. Plus these guys charging 150 for a 40 dollar usb key is wrong too. now what we have to focus on is spoofing firmware to psn network like the scene has been doing for the psp since sony started their sub-par network. Sonys online security doesnt hold a match to microshits and thats even got modded consoles on it, theres ppl even using cheats on it as well.On a final note sony should be happy to see a game loader for thier ps3 now ppl will actually start playing the games AND can justify having that 500 dollar blueray player. Now I have a reason to get my YLOD ps3 fixed NOW HURRY UP & PORT PSGROOVE TO IPHONE!!!!!! lol
This is weird. Going after those three must be based entirely on Internet 'visibility' of those sites, since they completely ignore one of the longest established modchip shops in Stockholm, which sells both modchip supplies and installation services both by web-order and in a normal shop on Södermalm, an area of stockholm to the south of Gamla Stan (the 'Old Town' islands). They still have the PSJailbreak ad on their site, and I still have my order placed with them (though still waiting for delivery confirmation).

But once the PS3 is started this way you can keep it so without further effort, even when switching between games both on HDD and on disc (provided the TI-84 stays connected and running that application). But I still plan to buy the original PSJailbreak too, if it does arrive here as planned (any day now, if so).
I'm not going to mention their name here though, nor their web address, since I take it for granted that this site is one of those most closely scrutinized by Sony lawyers and anti-hack experts. I don't want to help them catch those who slipped through the net this time...
Such damages for a product that never even arrived in this country yet...?
And thus never was distributed even to a single customer as yet...?
That is absurd, and any sane judge would throw such a case out of court after a single glance.
Btw: The word 'Crowns' used for SEK here is due to the Swedish name for our currency being "Krona" which is the Swedish word for "Crown" in English, and comes from the fact that most variations of the 1 SEK coin has always had a big image of a crown. (Very long ago though, our main currency was called "Riksdaler", or just "Daler", which is a Swedish variant of the same word as English "Dollar" or German "Thaler".)
That's just exaggerated scare tactics. I don't for a moment believe that they have already managed to get such a general consent to their plans from all those nations, and in particular not from Hong Kong.
Sony also brags to the Swedish media, that they been already successful in stopping the massive piracy that the PSJailbreak sales has caused in the countries of "Australia, Germany, Hong Kong and the Netherlands, where sales of PS Jailbreak have been already declared unlawful."

Not at all, since it is impossible to forbid all the hardware capable of doing it.

The ability to do this naturally applies to ALL nations, even where the PSJailbreak currently is under injunction, such as Australia. The TI-84 is sold all over the world, and will work for PS3 consoles of all regions. There is just no way Sony can ever stop that.
And if they decide to try it. Demanding an injunction to cover all Texas Instrument calculators that can control their USB port, then Sony will finally meet an adversary worthy of putting up a good fight...
It's one thing to stomp on a few pitiful retailers in a few countries (pitiful compared to Sony I mean), but tackling a giant like TI is an entirely different matter. Especially if TI then also ally themselves with all other companies selling hardware with similar abilities, and thus potentially subject to similar injunctions...
Sony may have a lot of power, but I think winning such a case is beyond their means.

2days ago Hong Kong Customs arrested 2 people for selling Jailbreak

look at the video, they have the devices in smaller cases too. that shipment looks like a bunch of fakes.
any one good at translateing ?
That is quite interesting, and to me also quite unexpected.

When you think about it, it does make sense that Sony would be a very important trade partner in that area, and that probably had a strong influence in making Hong Kong authorities cooperate with their wishes. That the product would have to go 'underground' at some point in many countries has been obvious all along. I just didn't expect Hong Kong to be one of them this early.
Even so, the longterm effect of this news report is just to give the product and its clones wider advertising coverage.
Now lots of people who otherwise would never have heard of it, not being regulars of any console-related sites, will have learned that this sort of thing is possible and will actively be looking for the product, or its clones. And they will find some, whether the market used is normal, 'grey', or 'black'.
