    Sometime ago, the DNS trick has been patched, giving you the "Must update" screen.

    In further news the Sony vs Geohot case is starting to pickup heat as Sony is now gathering evidence. Sony has demanded that Youtube give up information of Geohot’s youtube account where THIS jailbreak video was originally revealed AND, how many users had accessed the video, the usernames and IP addresses of everyone who viewed/posted/published comments related to the video…meaning this information probably includes YOU. A bit of an overkill don’t you think?

    Furthermore, Sony has demanded Twitter to give information related to everyone on the Fail0verflow Team (good luck with that), and take them down as well.

    Geohots attorney replied: “The discovery they call for in my opinion is overbroad,” when asked by The Wired.

    ok
    if we are in the United States, it is illigal for youtube to give the information of people to sony.
    this goes against their privacy agreement and thus goes against the law that prevents broken contracts.
    then, it is unethical to allow sony to take the rights of people to use the internet as they plz.
    its free speech. A company can demand it gone and pay for it to go then ok but demanding a company or person to remove information from their site on legal grounds is wrong. sony cant have the right to do this. I guess it shows that the US governmensides with corperations if they win.
    honestly, i find this whole case unconstitutional.

    Honestly, if the subpoena for youtube is approved, whoever watched that video and can afford it they should sue Sony for invasion of privacy.

    As I have said before, what Sony is doing is Unethical, Idiotic, Desperate and just plain FACIST
    I don't even own a PlayStation, but the thought that policemen can come bursting through my door just because I watched the video cause I was bored and I mirrored the keys on webs.com and posted them on digg. I don't even fall into Sony's jurisdiction, I live in fucking Canada.
    Fuck Sony.

    I don't understand, people who viewed the video and watched it and everything... what's that going to do? What can Sony do IF (though they most likely won't) get the viewers information? They can't exactly say "You watched a video, we ban you now."

    I love how Sony demanded in the original legal documents that this information be wiped off the internet... only problem is, when something is on the internet, it takes all of 10 seconds or less for it to be permanently on there. Sony can't stop it.

    But giving out IP addresses and everything, I'm pretty sure Sony can't do that. As the viewers who commented and everything, haven't done anything wrong (unless Sony can prove it). Sigh... I wish Sony would stop being butthurt. And instead of trying to control the internet, they fix their console.

    Let the courts decide if Sony are in the right. If not, egg on their face.

    I'm sorry, but that's LOL-worthy.

    Do you seriously think a president who supports ACTA and COICA will stop a big business from doing something that only some know about, especially since many of those that know are not yet of voting age?

    I wish someone would, though.

    Oh wait, there is someone.

    SUE THEM LG, TAKE THEIR MONIES SO THEY STOP THIS CRAZY SHIT.

    I know this may seem dumb, but if I watched a video about any of these, they would come and arrested me?

    Possibly. Did Sony buy the S.W.A.T. team yet?

    k that's ridiculous .
    this is invasion of privacy . sony acts as if they own the internet . i was considering that sony was a great company at first . now i don't even want to support them anymore .

    i am skeptical , extremely skeptical about buying a PS3 . what they do , is just plain stupid . honestly , go ahead and sue people who have hacked your console , but to the extent and measure of getting the information of people on YOUTUBE? come on . get out .

    to those who think just cause you're in Canada , we are practically under the USA . whatever happens there , will be passed on to here . we aren't really independent anymore . if you've noticed , most countries depend on the States . see the recession ? when USA's economy went down , many countries around the world were drawn into the recession because we depend on the States .

    This is 100% BS. It's not illegal to watch a video on Youtube, unless the video was snuck past their kiddie pr0n sensor.

    Sony is going f--king overboard. They think they can go around, and get all the info they want just because they are a big corporation. We have rights too, like the right to privacy. Hopefully Youtube and Twitter won't give in to this abomination of a corporation that is Sony. Thanks Shepard on keeping us updated on the whole Sony case, and fueling the fire! [​IMG]

    Although definitely going overboard with hunting down the video viewers, yes.

    Why just go for one person (geohotz) when there is a whole other group (fail0verflow) doing exactly what he's doing?
