PS3 Homebrew/Software List Preamble Q - "Isn't anything compiled with the leaked SDK illegal because it includes Sony's IP?" A compiled program is binary, it's bytecode. Sony cannot hold a copyright on the executable format for their system, because there's laws allowing for interoperability from other vendors. Sony and other companies are normally able to lock their system into only running programs from them because it'll only run signed code, and they refuse to sign code for anybody else... however when something else is made for a system (such as the Gameshark/AR accessories), Sony (or Nintendo, or Sega) has no legal reason to go after them. The unlicensed accessories/code continue to operate and even be sold in stores such as Wal*Mart because they are legally allowed interoperability. Flash carts and modchips and such are deemed illegal because they are or can be used for piracy, nothing to do with interoperability. Some PS3 homebrew needs a jailbreak device/method that's been updated with PEEK/POKE, generally called version 1.1.
