Sony vs Modchips

mj6798 Re:Self-inflicted piracy, or Why I would use Chips (423 comments)

They have every right to charge whatever they want in whatever region they want.

Well, no, they are not. More importantly, however, they are not free to limit arbitrarily how you trade in their products. I suspect you'll sooner or later see practices like Sony's be challenged under free trade agreements.

Seems more like nerd complaining than an actual rights issue.

You are quite right: it's not a "rights" issue. So why do you bring up the issue of "rights"?
