PS3 jailbreak prompts restraining order from Sony (CNet)

Sony is fighting and clawing its way to... wherever. But you're right, when bypassing restrictions goes viral (as this jailbreaking hack has done), it's going to be a real fight.
I wonder if Sony is still doing damage control from the rootkit music CD debacle of 2005 (PDF)...?

I was thinking lately whether to end my self-imposed boycott of Sony, but apparently Sony wants me to continue.
Sony Response to PS3 jailbreak prompts boycots...

The rootkit episode didn't cause me to boycot Sony, because it looked only like another example of Dilbertian corporate stupidity, but going after the PS3 jailbreakers with lawyers is evil. No more Sony products for me, or my family members.
