Sony Restraining Order Against GeoHot And Fail0verflow Granted By US District Court

Sony vs GeoHot

My faith in humanity is fading away and this process has been accelerated by the fact that Sony has been granted the restraining order against Geohot and the Fail0verflow team. The US District Court for the Northern District of California decided that Sony is right meaning that GeoHot and Fail0verflow cannot distribute the PS3 jailbreak method any longer, and in addition, they cannot encourage users to jailbreak their PS3.

Anyway Sony didn’t win anything yet because other people can still distribute and promote jailbreaking, and I’ve noticed that they won’t stop, and I doubt that Sony will sue thousands of people. The good thing is that jailbreaking is not illegal therefore we can continue to do the aforementioned stuff for as long as we want.

What I don’t understand, is how did Sony win this complaint. Like said: jailbreaking is not illegal so why would the US District Court for the Northern District of California grant a restraining order against Mr. George Hotz and Fail0verflow? More on this matter can be read here.
