Asia Bizz: Sony Corp. of Japan has brought the alleged hackers who published the security codes after hacking the PlayStation3 (PS3), to the court. It is reported that after using these codes, the device gets disabled, and the user can use any sort of software discs on the device. Users can any type of gaming CD/DVD’s on the PlayStation3, which fairly includes using pirated software.
Sony has officially filed a lawsuit on the basis of copyright infringement and computer fraud. But George Hotz, the person who leads a group of hackers and solely responsible of breaking the security codes of the PlayStation3 said that he does know the importance of copyrights, but alleges that Sony’s move against him does not worry him much, nor does it contain any base.
Hotz told the media “I would expect a company that prides itself on intellectual property to be well versed in the provisions of the law, so I am disappointed in Sony’s current action.” The twenty-one year-old who managed to jailbreak the iPhone, is not the only one who is roped in the lawsuit, but there are hundreds of other people whotoo have contributed to the hacking of PS3.
