    My dad is constantly getting on my case about how some Sony lawyer could kick my ass for doing this. Is there any real backing behind this, and can they do anything legally? I know doing this on craigslist is NOT an original idea, but I'd like to know if anyone has some DEFINITE info on the legality of this.

    Yeah, I thought about putting it in the General section, but... this would get a quicker response. Yeah, I only do it for $20, but I might up that. My ads get flagged all the time, though. It's a nuisance more than anything.

    No it's not illegal.
    You are not charging for the hacks, you are charging for the service.

    Alright, thanks for that move (I wasn't sure). I figured that since I was only charging for a service, I wouldn't get charged with anything. Regardless, is there any specific documentation detailing the reasons behind this?

    It's like ebay, but not bidding. You put up an ad on the site and people can give you offers through pm's. You can pick whoever gives the best offer or whatever you want. it's also designed so you can get buyers who live near you so you could just drive it over and have a face-to-face transaction instead of shipping etc.
