I'm pretty sure with your first option they would try (at least) to charge you with obstruction of justice. It's not like they're just going to let you walk out after you say you "forgot" your password.

The second would probably net you obstruction of justice, tampering with evidence, and probably some other stuff.

Obviously, IANAL.

Of course, so far Sony has been too stupid to know whats actually in their own best interests.

People keep saying this, and I find it hard to believe. Sony know's exactly what is in their best interests. They've done a cost / benefit analysis I'm sure, and decided pissing off some people (like us on /.) is worth it in the long run.

Containment unit != containment vessel. That's one of the huge differences between this and Chernobyl. These reactors have the reactor in a containment vessel that is inside a containment building. Chernobyl just had a containment building and no inner containment vessel. Hence when the roof of the Chernobyl reactor blew off, the core was exposed to the environment. Here, the core is still inside the inner containment vessel, which may or may not be damaged.

"It's only censorship when the government does it."

No, it's only illegal censorship when the government does it. Everyone else can do it as well. However, just because it isn't illegal when a private company does it doesn't make it the right thing to do.

The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.
