A not so rushed post. Sony, LG, GeoHotz, and other Devs News.

As stated in my previous post, Sony has been taking a harsh approach to anyone who dares run Homebrew or try to bring back a Service all Ps3 owners bought a paid for when they first came out. OtherOS, Which is exactly what one Developer has done. The reasons they have taken it away, what we bought and paid for ? Was nothing more then you could run Homebrew on your system via OtherOS.

That being said, Sony is attempting to Sue the popular company LG for stealing their plans with the new phones, not exactly sure what all that is about. But it seems like the new advancements on the PS scene allowed LG(Maybe speculation) at least that is what it will remain as, since nothing is for certain how LG obtained this information. LG is counter-suing Sony for the use of their Blu-Ray technology that they allegedly had stolen from LG.

It's basically a huge Sue Fest, and the main "culprit" in this all ? George Hotz, the same person who had won against Apple when he was able to Jailbreak their devices, and now Sony is trying the same thing. Sony has subpoenaed as I said before, YouTube, Twitter, etc, and many other sites such as Ps3-Hacks.com in an attempt to obtain and locate the main Developers working on their own little Ps3 and Custom Firmwares right now. They even went as far as to attempt to secure IP addresses via YouTube from the people who even attempted to view a Video one of the Devs posted.

Now this brings in the question, if Sony wins, does that give them the right to do whatever they wish with all the products we purchase with OUR OWN money making it legally ours ? Or will we simply be renting everything we buy from them and allowing them to do whatever they please with our rented items.

Something just doesn't seem right here.
