Sony Demanding Identity Of Anyone Who Saw PS3 Jailbreak Video On YouTube

"Sony continues to massively overreact to the news that a hacker figured out how to 'jailbreak' the PS3 in order to re-enable the functionality that Sony had deleted from PS3s. Beyond getting a far overreaching gag order on George Hotz, who figured out the jailbreak, and playing Whac-a-Mole to try to take down the code anywhere it appears, the company has now asked a judge to order Google to provide the IP addresses and other identifying info of anyone who viewed or commented on the video about the jailbreak that was hosted on a private YouTube page."

  2. It's only scary if google is actually ordered to provide the addresses of people who viewed the video. Why does google even log that?
