Sony won't go down but it's nice to see someone on this website willing to admit SONY'S attacking GEOHOT was a HUGE MISTAKE.
Way to misinterpret my post. I didn't say it was a mistake (hence the qoutations around the word), and never said it was a HUGE one. Sony did what they felt was right for their company. Doesn't matter if you agree with it or not, they have every right to do so. The courts are the ones who are to decide what is right and what is wrong. Of course, Geohot didn't allow the court to make a final verdict, as he settled beforehand. But whatever was decided in that court should have been accepted by the hackers, or if they didn't agree, they could have done the mature thing and requested Geohot make an appeal. Instead, they acted like children and tried to hurt Sony in their own way. A way that has brought a public eye on this hacking situation and turned many against the hackers, even though they claimed to be doing it for the consumers. I wouldn't be surprised if the government starts getting stricter with the internet. And really, they should have been doing something earlier. The internet should not be a place for people to just do whatever the Hell they wish, especially when it hurts other individuals.
