Re: [dvd-discuss] UK ruling against Playstation mods

Thanks for the pointer.One excerpt:

Judge Jacob stated that Sony licensed games for the territory that they were
issued, the licensing of these games did not allow for their use in other
territories, therefore whether they were imported for private and domestic
use by personal purchase for instance via the internet, or purchased abroad
on holiday, they were not allowed by Sony to be played outside of the
licensed territory, this argument should be upheld.

So any restriction put by any company in any license can serve as the excuse
for enforcing a ban on circumvention.
