Yeah that's what it basicly means.
However, who would download anything from the PSN store anyway when you've got custom firmware?
Kind of pointless, but I guess they've got to do something.
Don't know don't care. Make a new PSN or change your account information to something fake.
Flashing an sich is not illegal
Damn I guess I have to make a new one. I don't download much from the PSN except demos, but since I use it as well on my PS3. I'd rather keep them separate.
violates the DMCA, bypasses built in copy protection
its illegal here anyway
Be smart and always download legal demos from the official websites.
EDIT: Hop edited before I could quote. Nevermind.
Is this only in America? I've not heard anything about it in the UK.
I got this email and I'm from the uk.
I'm from mexico and did'nt get the mail
I've logging into the Store on my PSP before with custom firmware and I also use the same account on my PS3...Maybe I shouldn't?
With sony pushing customisation i.e modnation racers, and whatever else to join LBP and stuff then its probably there to cover themselves incase someone makes a movie based prop or something.
That and also doesn't gamesharing factor in to violation of IP/fraud/etc and such?
Yeah, and it's 5 years for every act of circumvention. That means that if you started with 2.71SE and are now at 5.50 GEN and only updated to newer OE/M33 firmware when a new OFW was used as a base (and the only GEN firmware you used was 5.50), then you are looking at 70 years in prison (2.71se, 3.02oe, 3.03oe, 3.10oe, 3.30oe, 3.40oe, 3.51m33, 3.52m33, 3.71m33, 3.80m33, 3.90m33, 4.01m33, 5.00m33, 5.50gen multiplied by 5 years for each one). That's not including any ISO/CSOs you may have (either from self made backups or downloads) or any PS1 games you converted. Better hope they don't push for consecutive sentencing.
Got the email as well.
Lol, "what are you in for?" "murder 20 years" "rape 10 years" "modding my PSP 70 years"
Well personally it won't matter that much since the PSP can't even connect to PSN on CFW. I just hope Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker doesn't use a PSN based online system,if it even does get online multiplayer.
I'm curious wasn't there something that said you can't be tried twice for the same crime? So I'm guessing the max one can do is 5 years.
Ouch, this change sounds bad for us either way. Now im glad i have a Go and a PSP-2000, can use PSN on one, and CFW with the other. Sony seems to be cracking down though, im just hoping they dont change things like the Game-Sharing policy on PS3 (Like they did in Europe)
Yes, but double jeopardy only applies to being charged twice for the same crime. As each act of circumvention is a seperate crime, it can be charged seperately. It is similar to how if you punch out several people in a barroom brawl, you can be charged for assault once for each person you hit. The good news is that I have never heard of consecutive sentencing being used for nonviolent crimes, such as copyright infringment or circumvention of an access control device but it is theoretically possible to get 5 years for each time you modded your PSP, including CFW upgrades. Of course, this is assuming the DoJ even wants to bother with prosecuting anyone who isn't doing modifications for profit (running a psp modding business, in other words).
Double jeopardy doesn't apply that way. When they said "same crime", they mean like if you got acquitted, they can't retry you again for that same exact incident. So someone could get charged with stealing twice, as long as you stole twice. If you got charged for stealing, then got acquitted, they can't retry you for that same incident, but they could charge you again if you did it again. This should be obvious enough since it's similar to illegal music dling, and how ppl that got charged had to pay enormous amounts, not just one song.
Besides, even double jeopardy had its loop holes, such as it only applying if you are within the same states and such...
