    If you're really interested you'd be better off researching it on a Government site than asking on a Piraters Dream Forum [​IMG]

    As far as I know, modchips aren't so much as illegal as they are warrant voiding. Its what you do with the modchip thats illegal.

    mod chips are legal in Oz, cos they allow the removal of region-coding ... which is permissable, under Oz law ... the fact tha they allow the playing of copies is just considered a side-effect.
