Hotz Must Surrender PC's

The court has granted Sony the temporary restraining order they had requested

A California court has granted Sony's Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order and Order of Impoundment against George Hotz, the renowned hacker that helped breach the PlayStation 3's security earlier this month.

Hotz, and all parties involved, are now restrained from distributing, providing, or otherwise trafficking in any PS3 security circumvention technology, including: products, services, methods, codes, and software tools, among others. Hotz must also remove any links from his website that directs others to the hacking software.

"Having considered all the papers and arguments, the Court finds that SCEA has shown a likelihood of success on the merits of its claims for violation of the DMCA and CFAA, and that it will suffer irreparable harm unless Defendant Hotz's violations are enjoined," the filing states.

The court also ordered that Hotz must preserve and not destroy computer files, documents, and hard drives containing hacking software. He also must turn over any computers, hard drives, CDs and other storage devices that contain circumvention software in the next 10 business days.

"Obviously, we are disappointed with the ruling granting the TRO," Hotz's attorney, Stewart Kellar, said in a statement given to IGN. "However, this preliminary determination does not end the issue of whether the Court has personal jurisdiction over Mr. Hotz.

"We are continuing to pursue all avenues of defense at this early stage of the litigation."

A hearing date has not been set but all parties must meet before Feb. 1, 2011.
