    It appears Sony's bad karma has turned around and bit the company in the rear end. In a court case stemming from Sony's decision to remove OtherOS, Sony is facing accusations of breaking the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The ironic twist to this story is that the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act is the exact same Act that George Hotz is being charged with breaking.[/p]

    This.

    croagunk.master you've got a very bad habit of just posting news stories without checking to see if they've already been posted. From now on I expect you to make 100% sure that the story you're going to post hasn't already been done. Future duplicate threads will not only be locked, your post will be trashed.
