167w ago - Today garyopa at PSX-Scene.com (linked above) reports that Sony appears to be targeting the PS JailBreak, PSFreedom and PSGroove related PS3 hacks and has shared numerous court documents for those interested.
From one of the documents, to quote: "Similarly targeted document subpoenas or deposition notices to any other third party who SCEA learns may be involved in the distribution or sale of the PS Jailbreak software, known as, for example, PSGroove, OpenPSJailbreak, and PSFreedom, or who may have knowledge of the distribution or sale of this illicit software."
PS3 hacker Mathieulh is also mentioned in one of the documents as recently proclaiming to be one of 20 individuals behind PSGroove, to quote: "Mathieu Hervais told BBC News he was one of about 20 hackers involved in PSGroove's development."
Just under a month ago Sony was granted an injunction by Australian Courts on the sale of PSJailBreak PS3 modchips, followed by blocking PS JailBreak and PS3 proxy methods with the release of the PS3 Firmware 3.42 update, so only time will tell what their next move is.

wow they really are crazy xD haha well i'd say god luck getting info from my ISP lol, in sweden that's one long procedure, and cmon are they saying they are "going after people with knowledge?" i mean yea knowledge is power, and they are scared to shit to loose their power.
This is sick, i mean gah dont even find words LOL i mean yea hehe
Internet is a free source to knowledge so GFY sony, i dont support piracy they should go ahead and put their effort on blocking/banning Jailbreakers on PSN imho, or something like that.
I mean do they have copyright on the exploit or what? i don't see what they are after -.-
crap, I bought a 60gb that sat on a shelf for 3 years, upgraded it from 1.50 to 3.41 tried the jailbreak, upgraded to 3.42 then 3.50. I thought I was safe from banning but if sony is this paranoid I'm now scared that the bans will be here before xmas for any system that ever was jailbroken
If I bought a second ps3 for nothing and if my 60gb becomes un jailbreakable and non online compatable i'm going to throw it through one of sony america's windows.
I don't have my ps3 yet, or a jailbreak method but I am going to go ahead and download some ps3 games. A lot actually, that I will probably never play more than 5 mins just to see the opening vid but if it pisses sony off, I am doing it.
They say a picture says a thousand words. Well I think the one below only needs the two. Maybe he was onto something.....
Anyways, the only people Sony is really hurting are themselves. Yeah, great way to sell a product Sony. Take away everything that made it great (ie. Other OS, third party controllers XD, Micheal Jackson) and then blame the consumer and tell them it's their fault. By the time this is all said and done, all we will be left with is a Blu-ray coaster and Britney Spears.
But to be honest, the way the scene is moving atm, things are looking good for the consumer and very bad for Sony. So go ahead Sony take it all down idc about online or dlc. I have a PC for that. I've never been a pirate either, but it looks like some Sony titles are due for some pillaging.
And to this great site I send you the best of wishes. "Be strong, be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary Sony walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour." But like any other big cat, they don't stand a chance against a big gun. And let it be known that this community shall be your ammunition, we will keep you loaded and primed. If we all stick together, these big corporate moguls stand no chance against us.
