@CL60: They did have the right to sue if they thought there was a threat to their investments, and there was. As I mentioned, Geohot also didn't have the right to modify software that he didn't own. Geohot jallbroke, which is different from what he did with the PS3. With the PS3, he cracked the system to bring back a feature that had a gaping security flaw and was thus removed. He was sued because the security of their consoles was at risk.
