American law is what got Graf f**cked, so I am curious which law you know that means he can now sue Sony for wrongful accusations? Oh and even by American law, it IS illegal to distribute, or use distributed, firmware that has been altered to function in a way that is detrimental to the owners of said firmware (the owner is Sony btw, not the person who purchased the PS3 as that is hardware)......... They sell you the machine, they license the use of the operating system
I DO agree with what you say about as long as you are running a genuine disc and not cheating they should not be able to ban you though, as that means they have used information that they obtained in an underhand way at best
EDIT Has anyone looked into the legalities of forcing FW updates and them not allowing simple FW downgrades by software as that IS limiting the use of your purchased hardware by the TOS which can technically only apply to the FW (excepting PSN of course).
GH did achieve one good thing with his JB of the iPhone and that was to deny a company the right to dictate that you stay with them as a service provider (phones)......... *Trundles off to have another peek at the JB ruling and see how it relates to Sony's restrictions on not allowing another OS to be used on the PS3*
