    is it really legal what they did?
    as far as i know what he did was really nothing more than violating the psn ToS/license agreement which holds very little legal weight in europe.

    exactly.

    - he has himself to blaim, it may sound outrages looking at it from an anti-sony side, but they have legal right to do so.

    It's standard procedure with piracy charges.

    And Sony didn't "do" anything. They don't control the police. They filed piracy charges with the court, and the court ordered a search. So yes, it's legal.

    Well, if that's the case, then there's no need to get upset. This is standard procedure, then?

    graf_chokolo only reverse engineered, nothing to do with piracy. If that isn't legal, neither are Anti-Virus's.

    Ooooh! Scandalous!!! lol

    When Sony said they were going after people, they were serious!!! And it took them no time at all, either.

    I just say that all of the hackers and modders just collaborate and just take the PS3 down, from static IP addresses. Sony has yet to actually fix their security problem with it, or take the time to make the common key random, so it shouldn't be too hard to take down. Maybe a little virus that could make PSN unusable until Sony can fix it... lol That would be some initiative to fix there security there. lol
