* PS2 modchips legal for Aussies

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Good news from Groklaw: In Australia, at least, PS2 modchips are legal.

The Federal Court at first instance found that the chips in Sony Playstations which prevent you from playing legally purchased US-sourced games were not technological protection measures because they did not inhibit the infringement of copyright. The decision was reversed on appeal by the Full Court, arguing that the chips had a general deterrent function in respect of unauthorised copying. The High Court has considered the case and has unanimously concluded that the chips are not technological protection measures - reversing the decision of the Full Court affirming the decision of the court at first instance.
