    !!! NEWS FLASH UPDATE !!!

    Sony’s legal quest to remove its leaked developer’s kit from the Web
    Effort appears to be squashing leak discussion and homebrew SDKs as well.

    Back in the day of when the PlayStation 3 consoles and 'scene' was hot, having a SDK leak was the norm, there was a few of them from time to time, but so far in the new PlayStation 4 era, it has been hard-pressed to get hold of actual full SDK without becoming an official Sony developer, but somehow 'KromeMods' got access and he leaked them over the weekend, but of course Sony sent out their army of Men In Black takedown bots, and almost all links have been erased from the internet's memory with legal threats also as usual! :)
    We first published this story on July 10th, which was 48 hours after the leak, and after takedown notices were already issued on Twitter and Mega, so we thought it was fine to report the news about the leak as forum news discussion thread like we have in the past, and we didn't include any links, and as our site policy any links by users would had been removed right away, but that was not good enough for Sony, after going thru the Internet, and removing almost all traces of it, first from sites that were easy targeted via DMCA laws in the USA, they then set their sights on 'discussion sites' like ours hosted in Netherlands and hired lawyers registered there to enforce local EU laws to remove even this news posting which contained nothing but a 'screenshot' which was barely readable showing the 'front page release notes' for the leaked SDK, it seems that was enough to enforce a takedown here since the 'words were written by Sony and as such 'copyrighted' and 'reproduced' without their 'written permission', but as usual we have taken a 'stand' against this freedom of discussion since we didn't have any direct or in-direct links to the leaked SDK, and have now updated the news posting to state our objective to their army of lawyer takedown bots trying to remove our legal right as member of the press. (So, F-U-$ony!) :)

      I updated this news posting yesterday, with the info about Sony using their legal muscle to remove all 'open free discussion' regarding their SDK leak, and even tho I didn't have no 'links' to the material leaked, they still issued takedowns both here locally where the site is hosted and also in usa with twitter to remove the headline summary and screenshot.

      In the issue of open transparency i am posting screenshots of their notices, since i am objecting to it as there is no infringed content at all. :)

      That's right sir! Don't take no crap from em!

      It's one thing to post links, it's a total other just to be reporting about it.

      Wow! Looks like I'm waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too late. The SDK has been removed entirely from every portion of the internet. There's absolutely no way to get it anymore, unless anyone has already downloaded it themselves and are willing to share it through torrents or something.

      Just shows, it is actually possible to remove something completely from the internet. The saying that "once something is on the internet, it cannot be removed" is not completely true.
