#Sony vs Hotz http://snapvoip.blogspot.com/
It is just sickening even to write about this. Sony seem to be using anti-circumvention provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to get at people who are more than mere users. Sony has sued several security researchers for publishing information about security holes in Sony’s PlayStation 3.
So how do you know that will not extend to Sony Android phones. As far as I am concerned, I will get another Android phone! Because I want to root my Android phone without getting sued.
What is more, according to EFF,
"Simply put, Sony claims that it's illegal for users to access their own computers in a way that Sony doesn't like. Moreover, because the CFAA has criminal as well as civil penalties, Sony is actually saying that it's a crime for users to access their own computers in a way that Sony doesn't like."Well NO thank you SONY you forgot, we have better choices.! Welcome HTC, Motorola, Apple, LG, Samsung, and others. Oh WII and XBOX does not look bad either.
