Sony Takes Legal Action Against Swedish PS JailBreak Sellers


Sponsored Links
238w ago - According to the PS3 JailBreak Info Centre (linked above) via Swedish site IDG.se, 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."

They should also sue every site who's selling it, every site who's talking about it and everyone who's thinking about it. It's ridiculous !

Neither would Swedish laws, after all there is no copyright violation since it doesn't use Sony's code.

But there is still the chance it violates some other law.

I made a similar post in another thread.

As long as what was said about the jailbreak is true i.e. it uses NO Sony code then it doesn't matter if the devices are pre or post flashed. (at least not in America)

well considering that the ps3 took 4 years to hack that the ps4 might just be unhackable atleast from a developer standpoint someone is gonna screw up at some point and then and only then will it maybe be hacked.

do they even know a free version is out? lol..

then again i guess they might be using this as a battle ground for PS4 hacking.. when that one finally gets hacked, it'll be easy for sony to stop the selling of modchips.

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.

Let's wait... soon a lot of chinese webshops will sell "virgin" psgrooves devices.

Without firmware, Sony can't do nothing.
