UKIE Welcomes Sony's Action Against PS3 JailBreak ModChips

Sponsored Links
220w ago - Over the weekend more legal documents surfaced as part of an ongoing effort to extinguish the PS3 JailBreak, and today Examiner.com (linked above) reports that video games and interactive entertainment trade body UKIE welcomes Sony's swift action against PS3 JailBreak modchips.

To quote: SCEE reacted quickly to its becoming available, writing to the companies that advertised and stocked the Break device and advising them to desist in selling the illegal product.

Most companies that were contacted complied immediately and ceased to stock and to sell the product. Court orders were swiftly obtained against those companies that continued to sell the product and they have now also stopped selling the PS3 Break modchips.

UKIE's Director General, Michael Rawlinson, said, "Having our member, SCEE, respond so quickly to prevent the sale of illegal PS3 modification chips shows the commitment that the video games and interactive entertainment industry has to stamping out intellectual property theft.

Intellectual property theft is a hugely damaging crime both to the individuals whose creativity is stolen and to the businesses that make up Britain's video games and interactive entertainment industry.

UKIE's own anti-piracy unit works tirelessly to combat the illegal trading of video games and we welcome Sony's swift and committed response to dealing with the illegal sale of the PS3 Break modchip."

More the merier - more publicity = more people will know that it's possible to JB PS3 ...

They simply can't stop it anymore. There is so many various JB solutions that Sony simply have no chance of stopping / blocking them all.

The JB sellers will get more clever - rename the device to something neutral, ship it without the code loaded and Sony can go and jump of the bridge. Or simply they'll sell it from other countries which have sane laws or no (IP) laws at all

Just another stab at the consumers lack of rights.
