    I think if a mod looks at your comment, they'll change it for you.

    Have there been lawsuits against any modchips in the past (flashcarts excluded for now)?
    If there have and nothing happened then I don't see why Sony won this one unless there is some kind of copyright problem on top of the modchip.

    I think Sony won some lawsuit against some Australian online distributor of the PS3Jailbreak. But that's it I think.

    They got the device banned for sale in Australia. They haven't filed any other lawsuits yet.
    But why did they win that one? If there have been lawsuits against modchips before that were lost what made that one different, is what I'm asking. I'm not sure if there have been lawsuits before though (though I'd be surprised if there haven't)

    Sony can do whatever the fuck they want. It's their console, even if you pay 599$ for it, Sony still owns it (and you).

    I'd beg to differ. They can't, for instance, come and take it away from me. They just own the copyright to all the systems inside it so I couldn't clone it. They also have licensing laws that should prevent me from coding my own games for it without their conesnt.

    You then own the copyright to that logo, not the letters P and S. If you start trademarking letters I've just infringed several times in this sentence alone.

    nice to see their making an effort.

    the fact that this is getting sold is the problem in itself; only reason why sony is cracking down on them
