http://exophase.com/21266/sony-wants-to-su...gal-crosshairs/ As most of us should know as avid Homebrewers as such, Sony recently went up against a legal battle with the famed geohot. This somewhat resulted as a win for Sony, as he was made to deliver all his hacking tools and software and such up to a impounding place for a Temporary Restraining Order. geohot is fighting against it currently, but we have yet to find out the results. And as if that win wasnt bad enough, Sony is now trying to remove all information websites and even videos from youtube that were, and will be made to help people along with their efforts. The sites targeted, if Sony wins, will have to relinquish all server logs, ip address logs and other information, which will then be used to track the major hackers who have made efforts on the PS3 of any kind. This includes our own Waninkoko as well. So if this all happens, lets say in the next month or 3, and all the hackers and related websites are shut down, Sony wins, and in the end, We All Lose. After that, whos to stop Nintendo and Microsoft from cracking down in the same way? Resulting in the loss of the Microsoft Sites, and maybe possibly even our own beloved GBATemp. . . If Sony wins, the whole way we go about our internet lives could change in the long term, and tempers, ill be completely honest with you. Im scared. . . I'm legitimately scared. Lets say they decide to go further out into using the ip address logs and such to track us individually, and while not necessarily confiscating our shit, but being able to put a large fine on us for homebrewing/pirating. This would affect me personally as the reason i pirate in the first place is due to the fact that my family doesnt have enough money to spend $100+ a month on video games. So Lets begin this discussion: A) How do you feel about Sony's actions, do you agree or disagree? B) Do you think the other gaming & software companies will begin to do the same? C) Will you be affected personally by the possible future? D) Are you scared too? Not necessarily by the same things i am, but about the situation as a whole.
