This is a perfect demonstration of how you can have all of the crypto in the world in your system, but if you do it wrong why bother.

The back and forth now should be interesting, I can see Sony taking legal action but the cat is out of the bag.

With the release of the key new hardware is needed with new keys and I would hope random numbers this time, I think it can be assumed that the new PS3 consoles coming out in the near future may have new keys but I am not sure how this would effect running older software on the new consoles and new software on the old consoles, I was not able to locate much information on the subject.
