Interesting... It seems to me that most governments prefer to label everyone as pirates, while receiving "generous donations", from "anonymous sources". the fact that the court has actually decided that only some modchip users are pirates is a nice relief from the usual cases of big governments partnering up with big businesses, with the intent to screw the representees /customers.
This judgement actually seems... unbiased, as if the result of a desire to serve something called "justice". If only the United States would start thinking like this.
