Now let's see them sue Carnegie Mellon University.
That's one cocky professor.
EDIT: if anyone edits that to say nutty professor, I will personally smack you.
Reminds me of my Social Studies teacher.
Hahaha! Now Sony should start thinking!
I want to find this professor and shake his hand...and then ask him how interested he would be to collaborate with me on some homebrew
Do you see what I did there?
Also, that is an awesome thing that professor did. Go him!
Wouldn't it be miraculously funny if Sony sue him, they get to court, and the professor reads fine print on one of his papers that he's using to defend himself, and he realizes he fucked up and goes "whoops."
give up sony you can't win hackers are everywhere you'll need to sue the earth to stop them all
Haha...I should go downtown, pay CMU a visit, and congratulate him.
Wow, just... wow.
Seems like something my Java teacher would do.
Well I guess this will finally tell us whether we can legally get away with hacks this day and age
This lawsuit means much more then just the future of ps3 homebrew....
Also professor unleashes his inner rebellious teenager ftw!
Next, you see the keys everywhere on the net.
*Sees ps3 keys as banner*
Sony will then sue google
Anyway that would be mess up.
Haha, they will probably talk to the school, then they school will tell him to take it down or loose his job.
I'm just curious what kind of grounds Sony feels they have to win this lawsuit. How can it be illegal to publish these keys? Is there a form you sign when you purchase a PS3 that says you won't reverse engineer your system or something?
Obviously not, so there is no reason why you couldn't hack into your own legally purchased system. So OBVIOUSLY there is no reason for Sony to sue. My only thought is that they feel they can strong arm the man until he caves in financially.
As interesting as this whole discussion about Sony vs Geohot is, it just got even more interesting.
They list their reasons in the TRO, with precedent.
yeah that's pretty much sonys answer to everything do as we say or get your ass sued
Good to see people standing up for Geohot, especially someone as high-up as a university professor!
I managed to get the PUP, but don't we need to patch a firmware or something? I'm lost.
