    How come they can't get the kind of information for TPB or another similar site... surely that would be more condemning...

    Because TPB isn't located where the US' copyright laws are recognized/enforceable.

    So the word "PRIVACY" has no meaning now a days i see. Everyone its being violated of their right of privacy, this should only be affecting geo not the regular Joe. Im going ot seek legal advice over this whole thing, i have. I totally disagree and will be filing a counter lawsuit after seeking legal advice and if its possible only, they will be hearing about this all over facebook, i will posting this and let the whole country know what $ony its doing. Im not standing still why all this injustice its going on.

    With this information, they can track down every single person who viewed the video and somehow get you thrown in jail for watching a youtube video.



    THIS IS AN OUTRAGE
    THIS IS FUCKING MADNESS

    Sony, this is just plain futile, do you want to piss off a million+ people?
    The keys will never be erased!
    Hell, I even know a mirror site with the keys on it, AND YOU'LL NEVER FIND IT!
    Fuck you Sony.
    Fuck you.

    Someone should have a little chat with Joseph Spero [​IMG] about privacy

    (Also, he looks like a kidtoucher.)


    Justice is blind, but she sure can tell whichever side puts more gold on the scales.

    Well first they have to prove that any of us were intending to use the information geohot provided, as far as any of us are concerned it was just an interesting read.

    What worries me is that YouTube collects every IP address?

    They dont "collect" it but they put cookies on your machine
    How else do you think they can give you "Related" videos or "Videos you might like"?

    Also its simple on server logs

    Don't think for a moment that you've done anything wrong by watching a video, or modifying something you bought with your own money.

    If you're using the PS3 private keys to do anything, it cannot even really be called circumvention at all.

    This is such bull shit
    I went on geohotz site to jailbreak my ipod touch last year.
    As far as I'm aware it is the same site.
    Fuck off Sony.
    Also isn't jailbreaking now fully legal?

    Well, this in a way is not too surprising, but I had my doubts as to whether a judge would actually let them go through with the request, and it seems that they did. Well, this is wonderful, isn't it...but still, I'm hoping Geohot's side will come through, even if it begins to look unlikely (not that that's the case now).


    I can see your IP address right here too.
