A federal magistrate has awarded Sony a subpoena allowing the company to obtain the IP addresses of everyone who visited the personal website of PlayStation 3 jailbreaker George Hotz for the past 26 months.
Together, the subpoenas allow Sony to obtain a wealth of information about people who aren’t named in the complaint and have been accused of no wrongdoing. That includes the IP address of everyone who has visited www.geohot.com since January 2009 and the account names of anyone who has accessed a private video relating to the jailbreak on Hotz’s YouTube account.
Don’t you think that’s scary? Look at that 26 months – so you go visit a site and 25 months later someone finds child porn on it. And your IP gets handed over even though when YOU looked at it all was good. Nice.
And the ONLY reason you went to his site was because every damn gaming site linked to it? And now Sony know what you did. And they think you too are hacking cracking and stealing. Now they have this, what next?
