September 27, 2010 // 9:07 pm - Today garyopa at (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.

There is piracy, of course.

Just an Idea: Maybe we should all email Sony's tech support and inform them that we have PSJB USB HACKS, and that we need to know how to play our downloaded copy of MW2 LMFAO @ SONY!

I wonder why they didn't go after geohot like they are with PSGroove, i mean he had read and write access to the vsh folder in dev_flash and MANAGED to dump 3.21 and retain otherOs months ago.. BTW this site was a huge source in a lot of different pdf docs.

Interesting to finally find out if Sony can show true copyright ownership over any part of the released exploit. Obviously homebrew makes use of leaked sdk – hope it won’t be too difficult for new apps to be released in the near future.

Something is brewing in the US about that boss as it can be read here:

This post will be auto merged, but the link is more on the copyright thing but it could lead to more a wide spread thing this bill.

Not sure if this is legit or just an attempt for a company to "take the money and run" but see here also:

Very true boss, hopefully some of us are a little bit more harder too find then the others. Thank GOD that different countries have different laws and it takes time for due process to occur. Like some one else mentioned in a post before about Jailbreaking being legal in the USA and getting info from ISP's takes time, so this will be a long drawn out legal process for some. THEN again there too many of teh UGA (UnderGround Army) (i suggest this as a name to refer to as THE scene, haha) to make a dent in this. Cat and Mouse game. I'd rather be the catnip and mousetrap, if you catch my drift.
