According to German sources, it seems that Sony is strong arming German PS3 Break buyers into destroying their hacking / homebrew-enabling devices.
More precisely, Sony’s lawyers are asking German buyers of PS3 Break to transfer the rights to request the package back from customs over to the company and to agree on the destruction of the device. German buyers are also required to sign a “cease and desist” letter which subjects them to fines in excess of 5,100 Euros if they import, distribute or use any device that allows or eases bypassing the copy protection of the PS3. Those who refuse to sign the “cease and desist” face a lawsuit asking for 50,000 Euros in damages.
I am not entirely sure as to why are they targeting Germans on this one. But either way I don’t agree with it! Let us know your thoughts on this whole situation
