Also interesting, the first post says "While not specifically mentioned in the court documents ... has been attempting to sell the new PS3 Jailbreak modchip, which allows users to circumvent the PlayStation 3's copy protection"
Because of the iPhone jb decision, suing for a jb i.e. being able run unsigned code isn't legal, so Sony can't argue on those grounds, instead they are trying to go for intent i.e they WILL copy our games. Good luck trying to prove that though.
