rsk writes "Since the PS3 MetLdr key was exposed by GeoHot and the fail0verflow group presented the PS3 DRM being subverted, Sony has been on a legal rampage to murder the cat now that it is out of the bag at all costs; one of those costs being a violently-degraded customer image.
Occurring right along side this event is Microsoft's response to Kinect hacking: "Cool, here is an SDK!"; not what I would have expected.
Given that the fight over DRM is an age-old battle (even on consoles) and there is plenty of market history to pull from to see what happens over time, isn't the right move for Sony to just suck it up, innovate and move forward?"
