Anonymous: Second press release to Sony ..!!

Greetings, Sony Customers And PS3 Users. We are Anonymous.

During
the last few days, Anonymous has been targeting Sony for their
outrageous treatment of not only PS3 users and jailbreakers, but also of
the general public. Their propaganda regarding jailbreaking implies
that it encourages piracy and thereby makes people lose their jobs,
whereas jailbreaking actually just means you are making YOUR device do
what it should do. Imagine if Microsoft forced you to use Internet
Explorer instead of Firefox or Chrome. Imagine if they denied users from
using any other web browser than their own. Many people would obviously
be pissed... but then, why aren't you pissed at Sony?

The
fact that their litigation demanded information on everyone who had
viewed the material, was completely unacceptable. This is a threat not
only to the gaming community, but to freedom of information in general.
The fact that the privacy of individuals can be violated, simply for
accessing information, and legal action can be taken for doing something
with something you own, are steps far beyond the line. Anonymous
decided it could not allow this to stand. If jailbreaking a phone for
use of legal (unsigned) apps is found legal, why would this be any
different for the Geohot case, seeing as Geohot explicitly states he
does not support piracy?

Anonymous is not attacking the PSN at
this time. Sony's official position is that the PSN is undergoing
maintenance. We realize that targeting the PSN is not a good idea. We
have therefore temporarily suspended our action, until a method is found
that will not severely impact Sony customers.

Anonymous is on
your side, standing up for your rights. We are not aiming to attack
customers of Sony. This attack is aimed solely at Sony, and we will try
our best to not affect the gamers, as this would defeat the purpose of
our actions. If we did inconvenience users, please know that this was
not our goal.
This operation is a response to Sony's attempt to
deprive their customers of products they bought and therefore own,
wholly and completely. Anonymous will not attempt to fight this by
following the exact same course of action. We have plenty of tricks up
our sleeves.

As a last point, we would like to point out that
different operations are "run" by different people. Those who are
involved in the organisation of OpSony, are not necessarily those
involved in that of SonyRecon. Anonymous Operations are generally
independent efforts, and it would be a mistake to assume that the same
individuals are responsible for every action taken. Anonymous is
comprised of people with diverse points of view, of which not all
coincide with one another.

That being said, our campaign against
Sony and others that would trample on the idea of free information will
continue, until we are satisfied with the outcome.

We are Anonymous,
We are legion,
We never forgive,
We never forget,
Expect us.
