Sony Demanded to Disclose IPs of PS3 Hack Viewers

Sony required Google to pass over the usernames and IP addresses of every person that has either posted the video or published comments in response to it. The video in question is titled “Jailbroken PlayStation 33.55 with Homebrew”. Of course, after the demand it was made private.

At the very start of the year, a user nickname of GeoHot, well-known for helping to crack iPhone, had published the root key of the Sony’s PlayStation 3. By doing so, he provided all users on the planet with an incredible tool to play downloaded games directly on the gaming console.

To explain it briefly, the root key is a kind of the holy grail of jailbreaking. It is so because the root key is in fact a signature confirming to the equipment – in our case the PlayStation 3 – that the game about to run isn’t pirated. So, after getting the root key from the Internet, any user could run their own, home-made software or pirated games.

The guy that discovered the root key, George Hotz, has made it available online and even created a video of his own exploits. However, the company has been working hard to do its best in scrubbing the root key from the web.

GeoHot has also published a video of his exploits on YouTube, giving it a title “Jailbroken PlayStation 33.55 with Homebrew”. Although he has made the video private, the company has still demanded in court that Google disclosed all the usernames and IP addresses of Internet users who have either posted the video or published comments in response to it.

Today, when the video has been made private, the company demands all the information and documents that would help it identify both the usernames and Internet accounts having access to it. Sony claims that GeoHot infringed the Digital Millennium Copyright, since he bypassed its technological protection measures for the gaming console, and further made unauthorized Circumvention Devices, i.e. the root key, widely available to the public.

In short words, it’s all a very interesting path for the company to take, considering that the root key is already out there and can’t be forgotten at once and by everyone. Actually, the industry observers believe that it would just make many despise the company even more. Taking into account that Sony is still haunted by the DRM Rootkit scandal, someone would think that it would be better stay below the radar on DRM issues.

menahunie avatarIf I understand correctly; Sony is implying when you buy their PS3 YOU DON'T OWN IT; THEY DO?
That is like you buying a car and it is programed for burn premo gas and at one gas company only; then you use a "root key" to unlock the programing so you can buy regular gas at any gas company now are sued for breach of "copyright"??
