    lol ridiculous. No way they could do anything to everyone who watched video/looked at site. They have zero evidence of any crime. I'm willing to bet that many people who looked at that stuff (myself included) don't even own a PS3.

    Sony is getting my IP address, but they have absolutely no right for that at all.
    When I visit a website, I know they can store my IP address. I agree to that. However, for a third party to demand that information is rediculous. They are not the police. They have my IP address as well and I don't even own a PS3. It doesn't matter that I already share some infomration with people, that doesn't mean a corporation like Sony should get access to that information as well.

    They can't do nothing with the ip besides know from where do you are. Google knows, this site admins knows, everybody knows. They can't just go with your ip and ask for your personal information. Unless your name is George Hotz

    It's like people in this thread don't realise what a useless number your IP address actually is.

    It's like they don't realise how constantly it changes, either.

    Well, if you looked at it closely, it makes perfect sense.
    The left side guy is the government, and he says he votes for the highest bidder, meaning they help the people with the most money.
    The table is the court, which stands on the broken stand, which represents the values are very "broken".

    I would agree. Some of the people in these forums just don't like admitting the truth.

    would you mind stating the "truth" so that the few of us who disagree with you might have a better chance at understanding the situation?

    and...holy double post cardman

    Just the anti-Sony ones. Also I hope he knows that if he has to explain it, he's doing it wrong and that this was all a sick joke he's playing.

    it's a good thing he took the time to explain it

    I completely misunderstood it...

    I thought the two sides were voting on the popularity of items on Ebay via their smartphones and that the court stood for a retro, funky table and some matching chairs.

    Citizens of the United States really need to give the central government a lesson in "privacy," and how it relates to our rights as United States citizens. Whether we should be afraid if we wronged or not is not in question, it's the principle of allowing others to intentionally look into our personal matters.

    This is bullshit. The true Uncle does not approve (pun intended).

    this could be the death knell of sony. it's unlikely that their invasion of privacy will be known only to those in the gaming sector. I envision massive boycots of sony tvs, cameras, and the junk they call a laptop. I hope that company is gone within five years, and Kazuo Hirai is forced to hook on the street just to get by! haha!!

    doubtful that their "invasion of privacy" will have any effect at all on their bottom line...

    look at all the information Facebook sells to the highest bidder. They still seem to be doing pretty well... And they have access to far more detailed information than which state your username is from.

    ISP here in Canada don't give personal informations. So Sony can't trace me no matter what they do. So Sony, you may have my IP, but it's completely useless to you. Without the ability to trace it back to my home address and any personal information, it's just 4 numbers from 1 to 255.

    What makes you think your ip is important to them? They only need the ones from California, anyway.
