    Sony has lost a legal battle in Australia over the modifying of its PlayStation games console.

    The High Court has ruled that chipping the console so that it can play imported games does not breach copyright law.

    The ruling ends a four-year legal battle between Sony and a supplier of so-called mod chips, which bypass regional controls on the machine.

    In the UK, the selling of mod chips was ruled illegal in 2004.[/quote:af103c1b94]

    Glad to see some country out there (Australia) has some common sense.

    But seeing as you mention Australia, did i ever tell ya’s about the time I got an uber sensitive email from the Aussie Secret Service? I guess I’ll save that story for a shindig…
