It seems Sony did not learn anything from the iPhone jailbreak. george Hotz of iOS jailbreak fame has done the same for the PS3 and Sony doesn't like that.

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge here on Friday put off deciding whether PlayStation 3 hacker George Hotz should surrender his computer gear as part of a lawsuit from console-maker Sony.

Sony sued Hotz on Tuesday, alleging Hotz’ posting of the code to crack the PlayStation 3 was a breach of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s anti-circumvention provisions. Sony, which is also seeking unspecified monetary damages, also wanted Hotz to remove any code the New Jersey man had uploaded to the internet last week.

The Hack allows users to run third party or home brew apps, like the iPhone hack, on their PS3.
