    As far as I know, he hasn't done anything illegal, so there is no legal action that can be taken.
    Maybe the PSOne DRM hack, but I don't see how they can get him for that.

    Meh, all those WMA/iTunes DRM hacks are considered legal under US's "fair use" laws. There's no reason why hacking the PSX DRM shouldn't.

    Damn, I haven't seen Chaos Zero around for awhile.

    More on topic. I agree, he hasn't really done anything "illegal", just things that really piss Sony off. He isn't going to be sued or anything like that.

    I think the only way sony can make DA to pay is to bribe the tester to fail him in his exam. :P

    I think he has worked for Sony PSP already! Without him I wouldn't buy the PSP and the games.
    How many people here you think will get/buy the psp w/out anyhacks AT ALL??
    Without him maybe the psp "hacks" member only about half or even 75% less than now, Maybe!!
    Indeed Sony "love"/ need him like crazy!!lol.......

    I read somewhere where they interviewed DAX and he said "I'm not responsible on how people use my applications"
    He basically means that he created his CFW so that people can use homebrew.

    LOL @ U SONY!
