    Default Chipping in the uk (legality)

    Just had it confirmed that i am going to be getting all my chipping gear and chips back from a TS raid that happened not so long back....
    TS were trying to build a test case against ps2 chipping so they could outlaw it...
    fortunately for me i had mark jackson of tuckers solicitors on my side
    the legal side of things hinged around whether sony could get the courts to accept the fact that ps2 was a computer not a console...if they were succcesful then i would of been prosecuted under computer misuse act...unfortunately for them they couldn't
    and thus chipping is now legal in our merry land
    So stride forth and make some cash lads
    If anyone needs any help with any ongoing TS cases then give mark jackson a shout
    ta to all my customers for all there support during these difficult times and most of all thanks to Mark Jackson and the team at tuckers

    Great news buddy but i think they would have another story with the Xbox as this is far more like a computer than the PS2 is

    congrats anyway

    I read in 'indie' magazine a brief statement that the government was in the process of making all modchipping illegal, so that it would be a criminal offence, rather than a civil matter as it is now.

    Ill try to scan the report later if i can
