Sony Takes Legal Action Against Swedish PS JailBreak Sellers
According to the PS3 JailBreak Info Centre (linked above) via Swedish site http://www.idg.se/2.1085/1.338331/sony-stammer-spelbutiker, Sony has now taken legal action against Swedish PS JailBreak sellers.
This news comes as no surprise after Sony won an injunction against Australian resellers and subsequently filed suit against a US reseller.
To quote: "Sony's lawyers have sued Manzzon, Rejoy and WeChip and those stores has now removed the product from their shops.
When checking the list of Authorized Dealers on PSJailbreak.com, you can now see that only 16 of the 26 listed shops actually sell the product."
This is sad and funny, why won't sony just count the losses and give up? Oh wait what losses, now the console sales are going to skyrocket. Suing destributors wont help them since the free version came out along with future ports. People will just go to local shops where they will be able to purchase home made jigs and pirating/homebrewing will still continue.
Sony please give up, its a battle your not going to win, when anything hits the interwebs, it gets spread like wildfire.
w00t wtf i live in sweden, didn't see this comming imo lol, sony is taking it way further then the other consoles, they won't admit they lost this one, hehe look out soon they probably sue the net and all the users, lol its so fun but scary same time, sweden has some messed up laws (not some more like most of em) who knows what will happen. ;S
Well if the report about the jailbreak being ported to the PSP is true then I wouldn't worry about any of this. There will finally be a free solution that many of us can use. It seems at least half of us here have PSPs.
That's the problem... they are selling these devices preflashed. Sell empty micro controllers just like the modchip manufacturers do. I also think Sony is doing this as this is all they can do from a legal standpoint to fight their console compromise. They have no legal ground in the homebrew community/interweb.
