I figure where our opinion differs is in the moral application of the End User License Agreement. Im in the camp that consideres breaking the EULA is not the same as breaking a law and I'm perfectly willing to void warranties or be banned from the playstation network if I chose to mod a PS but I also 'know' that there is no law (or should not be) that says I cant modify my console in any way I choose.
For the record I realise the law is changing to reflect the corporate agenda and modding a console is (becoming) illegal however I strongly oppose this agenda, hence my opinions
Its interesting to hear others thoughts on the subject and im glad your sharing your opinions.
FYI: A large part of the reason I am so offended by this legal action and the Judge signing of on this, is the gross violation of civil liberty for anyone who viewed the sites in question..
a) Visiting this site or investigating the process involved and choosing to jailbreak your console are very different things and sony has no rights to know who chose to look.
b) Criminals and Sex offenders have their privacy more rigorously protected from discovery than the people who are being identified by this action.
