Sony: seeks compensation for jailbroken PS4 consoles

Η Sony Interactive Entertainment (Sοny) ζητά σαν αποζημίωση 16.000 δολάρια από ένα άτομο που διέθετε στην αγορά jailbroken κονσόλες PS4 γεμάτες με πειρατικά α. Επειδή ο πειρατής δεν ανταποκρίθηκε στην κλήση της εταιρείας, η Sony κατέθεσε μήνυση και ζητάει από το issue a default judgment for violation of the provisions of the DMCA.

For many years, the PlayStation 4 (PS4) remained an invincible stronghold in cracker attacks.
This started to change slowly during the summer of 2017 that released a first jailbreak. A year later the jailbreak tool was upgraded, and the popular console is now a victim of pirates.Sony

Her flare-up s prompted the Japanese company to take a stand. Last October, he filed a lawsuit against a California man, accusing him of selling jailbroken PS4s loaded with pirated games.

According to Sony, defendant Eric Scales used the alias “Blackcloak13” to sell jailbroken PS4s containing dozens of pirated games through eBay. It also had its own website, informing those interested that they could "stop buying games" and use pirated .
In the months following Sony's complaint to the federal court in California, not much was done, as the defendant did not respond. So last week Sony filed a new request stating:

Defendant Eric David Scales advertises and sells jailbroken PlayStation®4 game consoles on eBay. These "jailbroken" PS4 consoles are loaded with pirated copies of PS4 video games.

Going forward, Sony is asking $800 for the two consoles sold and another $200 per pirated game, for to the provisions of the DMCA. So with the 76 games that the consoles contain, the total damages according to the company amount to 16.800 dollars.
