A magistrate has decided Sony can subpoena PayPal to access George Hotz's, aka GeoHot, PayPal records. Sony claims Hotz received money for the hack from people in Northern California, a claim Hotz denies. Sony is currently suing GeoHot for posting a video explaining how to hack the PS3. He was however, not the one who discovered the exploit, nor was he the one to make the first custom firmware.
Two weeks ago Sony was granted access to the IP addresses of everyone who went to GeoHot's website since January 2009. In the weeks prior to that Sony also gained access to information about GeoHot from YouTube, Google, and Twitter. GeoHot is accused of breaking the Digital Millennium Copyright Act by posting the encryption key for the PS3 hack on his website.
Every time Sony gains access to more information, I ask you, "Do you think their actions are fair?" I can't help but feel like Sony is going about this the wrong way, am I totally off-base in thinking they are trying to make an example out of him?
