A) Getting IP's doesn't prove that people used Geohotz code.
B) He doesn't deny distributing it... that part of the case isn't in arguement.
C) Ok to make money off Playstation games? Yeah. See Gamestop. Not sure how that's relevent to anything though.
They used youtube to prove that he distributed the code and that the peopple watched it and took it for hacks
I never said anything about denial, im not arguing agaisnt or for him at all. Im arguing about Sony vs. Bleem
Gamestop is a retalier. They didnt build thier own hardware and make it play games from the other systems and make money off of it without the premision from the people who own those games (in this case Sony)
And? They're making money without sony's permission by selling used games.
Like I said, building your own hardware to play games is 100% legal.
Though I don't believe Bleem was hardware, I believe it was a software emulator.
Look at "Crossover" and all the other legal emulators for Macs... that were posted in the other thread you seem to be argueing just to argue in.
Yes, because people already gave Sony money by previosly buying thier games, and once they buy it, they have right to do whatever they want it it. Bleem are using playstation games THEY DO NOT OWN on their hardware and they are making money off of them, because thier customers are attracted by something other company owns. I mean, how could Sony not sue them? It was a great justice that Bleem went bankrup and I salute Sony for taking down those thiefs
So in otherwords, you believe sony owns the games you "buy" as well as the Ps3 then.
Since apparently I can't play the games I buy on whatever system i want.
Your a funny guy.
No, no you can do whatever you want with your games and your PS3 as long as it doesnt effect other users.(cheating, hacking...) And i am arguing aganst Bleem not agaisnt the user of Bleem. Bleem didnt pay to use those games on their hardware, (which was the selling point of it), the customers on the other hand, already gave Sony money by buying their game and Sony has no ownership over it anymore, so the customer has the right to sell the game back. Bleem, as long as I know, gave Sony absolutely nothing, neither money nor credit
Why would they have to pay to use those games on their hardware? Sony didn't have to pay to use PS3 games on their hardware.
Bleem actually did buy a shitton of PsS1 games for which to test the emulation...
I mean, how else do you think they tested that?
Sony has to buy thier own games so they can use it on thier own hardware?
No Bleem. Bleem owned a ton of Sony games. So they did in fact pay Sony their money, for their games.
Then they created a way to emulate their games on PC.
Then they sold the method to others.
No differnet then say... buying a CD.
Developing a way to play the songs on a CD another way. MP3 player.
Then selling Mp3 players.
Mp3 players aren't any different then what Bleem was selling... and piracy is much bigger in the music industry, guess you should be picketing Steve Jobs house.
Oh and Sony. Sony makes Mp3 players right?
