Sony looking towards to bring down "hack" websites.






I'm not the one to post about PS3 gaming news, but I found this pretty interesting. People are bringing their Trade Mark down by having their logo on their site, therefore making them lose money. To the court!

New and allegedly leaked court documents reveal that SCEA is showing courts that they own a whole host of trademarks including Playstation, PSP, PS and PS3. The purpose of this is to add weight to their case to bring down any websites that go over the top when talking about things like backup managers for the PS3 and serving ISOs. A few 'PS3' hack websites are mentioned in the document unsurprisingly. Here is what is being reported by PSX-SCENE, "In this round of court documents filed by SCEA, they are showing the courts they own the rights to the names "Playstation, PSP, PS, PS3" so they are pushing the courts for speedy discovery for any website that uses this trademarked "letters / names" in their domain names.One website that is mentioned a few times is "PS3HAX" for their in-depth reviews and tutorials on using the "backup manager" and of course "PS3ISO" for their daily updates for grabbing various games directly from the 'net!"

  4. Thats exactly what happened to a Runescape botting fan site. I think its kind of stupid that they sue just because of the name. The PS hackers are just going continue their hacking using another domain name.
