angry tapir writes “Late last week an Australian court issued an injunction against a handful of retailers selling or importing hardware — commonly known as ‘mod chips’ — that allows unauthorized software to run on Sony’s PlayStation 3. The court also required that the four parties that were the subject of the injunction actually hand over to Sony any PlayStation modchips they have. Sony’s PlayStation 3 mod chip lawsuit could be just the first of many such cases in Australia, according to a lawyer who defended a client against Nintendo in a similar case earlier this year.”
