Some even go as far as saying you are leasing the console...the sheer stupidity of that is mind blowing.
Sony has a right to ban your console from PSN (as MS does with XBL), but I still think whatever you do with your hardware is your business. Even MS doesn't "break" hacked consoles.
As for playing pirated games, I think that's up to the studios to prosecute people who break the law.
