Anonymous takes on Sony

The infamous group Anonymous is at it again. This time taking down Sony's playstation network servers. This comes in response to the legal battle Sony has been having with Geohot, the young man behind the PS3 jailbreak. It is not clear whether Geohot organized this or not, but it is clear Anonymous has some beef with Sony. Anonymous claims the following gives them the right to attack Sony:
“You have abused the judicial system in an attempt to censor information on how your products work. You have victimized your own customers merely for possessing and sharing information, and continue to target every person who seeks this information. In doing so, you have violated the privacy of thousands.”

As of now all of Sony's sites are working, however PSN is going through spastic outages. Sony, not wanting to say they have no control over it, has deemed the outages "maintenance issues". Nice try Sony.
