    Well I guess we all better remove the P, S & 3 buttons from our laptops, keyboards, mobiles, remotes (the list goes on!)

    Then send them to Sony so they can destroy them in huge fiery furnace to rid the world of the menace that they are

    sony nonsense

    Sponsored Links
    I can't believe this is still an ongoing battle between sony and the homebrew world. I reckon sony should just stop this nonsense already and to applaud the people who have helped them to maximise the potential of their inventive system. Sony should just move on and start creating PS4 already lol

    There is actually quite a lot people using this as an affordable dev environment for such hardware and they simply can't use "regular" PC or MAC for that. So next time don't be so quick on telling people what they should do.
    I think you will find this is mearly my opinion, it is not what I am telling people to do! If they feel the need to use the console for other things then so be it. We all know the hackers will win in the end, they always do.

    Well i would think, its game over for sony on jailbreak matter. They could have luck closing down sites/webshops in the US. But there are allready jailbreak clones from China, they wont get any luck with an law suit there. Even in Europe where i live, its legal to sell jailbreak usb.

    Game Over Sony.

    3. This order shall be binding upon the parties to this action and all other persons or entities who receive actual notice of this order by personal service or otherwise;

    4. This order will be effective upon plaintiff’s posting of $5000 security with the court pursuant to FRCP 65(c);

    5. Plaintiff shall serve defendants, defendants’ resident agents or counsel with a copy of this order;

    6. This order shall remain in effect until the date the hearing on the order to show cause set forth below or until such further dates as set by the court or stipulated to by the parties.

    Thumbs Up PS3 Wikileaks Part #3 - More SCEA Court Action!

    Today garyopa has shared another update and some more court documents for those following: [Register or Login to view links]
    These files just basically state only THREE of the NINE previously named defendants, Tom Nooker an Ebay seller, Bin Le Zhong of ps3breakonline, and Fai King Fong of getps3break, that have gotten lawyers so far to try to defend themselves against the powerful SCEA MIB team.

    As for the rest of SIX remaining previously named and served defendants, no files have appeared for them, maybe on Monday those files will appear before the actual first court date on Tuesday, October 12th, 2010.

    And Sony also has filed a number of Exhibits these basically just are proof that the devices that hired SCEA agents had personally ordered themselves have infact appeared into their cool slimy hands, and been confirmed to be as-advertised "pirate device" that Sony wants to be taken away from all the PS3 console owners out there in America land.

    Arrow SCEA vs PSJailbreak'ers - The Big NO-Show!

    Another update for anyone curious: [Register or Login to view links]
    On Oct. 12, 2010 in the court room in front of the Honorable Judge Vaughn R Walker, the Show Cause court case between SCEA and the so far named PSJailbreak resellers, the were selling the original PSJailbreak, PS3BREAK and PS3KEY on varous online websites including Ebay occured.

    The end result, was just as pictured above, an Empty Court Room, the Big Showdown turned into the Big NO-Show, as a result the Judge had no reason not to grant what Sony was asking for and as a result of the empty room with no defendants, SCEA was granted the following Preliminary Injunction:

    On October 5, 2010, the court granted a temporary restraining order against defendants and ordered them to show cause why a preliminary injunction should not issue and why the court should not issue an order of impoundment pursuant to 17 USC §1203(b)(2). Doc #33.

    The court held a hearing on the order to show cause on October 12, 2010, and no defendant appeared.

    For the reasons explained below, plaintiff Sony Computer Entertainment America’s (“SCEA”) motion for a preliminary injunction and order of impoundment is GRANTED. SCEA and defendants Tom Nooker, Bin Le Zhong, Alex Esquivel and Fai King Fong entered into stipulated preliminary injunctions. Doc ##38, 42, 45, 47. SCEA has not moved for injunctive relief against defendants Vlad Gazoune and HuanRan Lee. The defendants bound by the this preliminary injunction are: Thahn Nguyen, individually and doing business as USATechCity, Ltd (“USATechCity”) and Arthur Bates II, individually and doing business as PSP Pit Stop (“PSP Pit Stop”).

    Having considered all the papers and arguments, the court finds that SCEA has established that it is likely to succeed on the merits of its claims for violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and federal trademark law and that it will suffer irreparable harm unless defendants’ violations are enjoined. The court additionally finds that the balance of equity and interests of justice support granting such relief. Furthermore, defendants failed to appear or otherwise show cause why a preliminary injunction and order of impoundment should not issue.

    Accordingly, the court orders as follows:

    1. Defendants and their officers, employees, attorneys and representatives, and all other persons or entities in privity or acting in concert or participation with defendants, are enjoined from selling, offering for sale, marketing, advertising, promoting, installing, distributing or otherwise trafficking in circumvention devices, including but not limited to any or all of the PS3 Jailbreak devices, any copies or versions of backup manager or any other hardware or software that bypasses technological copyright protection measures in SCEA’s PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system;

    2. Defendants shall preserve all communications, including email communications, and other documents relating to their purchase, sale, receipt or distribution of circumvention devices, including but not limited to the PS3 Jailbreak devices, the backup manager or any other hardware or software that bypasses technological copyright protection measures in SCEA’s PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and defendants shall not delete, remove, transfer or in any way dispose of such communications and documents;

    3. Pursuant to 17 USC § 1203(b)(2), all circumvention devices in defendants’ possession, custody or control are ordered impounded, including any or all of the PS3 Jailbreak devices, any copies or versions of backup manager or any other hardware or software which bypasses technological copyright protection measures in SCEA’s PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Defendants shall immediately deliver the devices to SCEA’s attorneys at Townsend and Townsend and Crew LLP, Two Embarcadero Center, Eighth Floor, San Francisco, CA 94111 Attn: Timothy R Kahn, Esq;

    4. The $5000 security posted to secure the temporary restraining order, Doc #36, shall suffice as security for this preliminary injunction;

    5. Plaintiff shall serve defendants, defendants’ resident agents or counsel with a copy of this order;

    6. This order shall remain in effect until further order of the court.

    That's All Folks! --- Case Closed for now!

    Post SCEA vs. Jailbreak'ers: NEW COURT ACTION!

    Another update from garyopa for those following the court battle: [Register or Login to view links]
    On the eve of everyone screaming about the new v3.55 Firmware update, killing off the Downgrading PS3 consoles.

    Sony has also been busy with new paperwork in a court room today, and have re-opened their case against the Jailbreakers in the United States.

    Lucky, for everyone it is almost XMAS season, so the next big court date will be February 24, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. in front of Honorable Richard Seeborg which will now also take place in the Golden Gate city of San Francisco.

    In the meantime SCEA is busy filing court papers and most likely new printouts from all the forum sites and other sites that have appeared in the last month with the outbreak of all these new fancy dongles and downgrades.

    So it seems tonight, Sony is not happy with just releasing a v3.55 update, it looks like they plan a new court battle also, and we here at PSX-SCENE will keep you updated as SCEA starts filing their paperwork thruout the XMAS holidays.

    Sony becomes the new Scrooge in our holiday books this year!
