Submission + - PS3 Jailbreak now legal in Spain (

deek writes: Spanish gamer site have reported that it's now legal to sell the PS3 Jailbreak modchip in Spain (Google translation). According to the article, one reason for the legal ruling is because Sony removed the ability to run GNU/Linux on the console. One can only wonder if Sony will soon rush out a firmware update that will re-enable the OtherOS feature, and appeal the court decision. Oh the irony of that thought ...

The legal ruling was made on the 13th December (Google translation). There are only 5 days to appeal, starting from that date.
