Today, Australian retailers including OzModchips have had to send those that ordered PSJailbreak some unsettling news. The news is that Sony Europe has imposed an injunction on any person selling the PSJailbreak and therefore they have no option but to issue a refund on PSJailbreak. It will take a very brave company to take on Sony! Sony has acted very quickly on the matter and a court hearing between Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and OzModchips is due on August 31st. E-mail revealed inside.
Here's a content of one of these emails:
We regret to inform you that today Sony Australia imposed an injunction against any company / personís selling the PS Jailbreak devices, so it is with great regret that we have to inform you that we will not be buying or selling any PS Jailbreak devices. We have just issued a full refund to your card for the pre-order made.
We wish to apologize immensely for any inconvenience this may have caused, and hope that you can understand our position on this matter. Please note the refund we have issued can take approx 5-working days to show on your card.
For those wondering, SCE Europe covers the EMEA region which includes Europe and Australia, hence why they are taking action against an Australian retailer. Within the case, there are multiple parties involved including:
SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT EUROPE LIMITED
SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT AUSTRALIA PTY LTD
OZMODCHIPS PTY LTD

GLOBAL SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL PTY LTD T/A QUANTRONICS
