US-Based Firm Launches Lawsuit Against Sony Over PSN

Rather a lot of people are upset with Sony right now, as they declared that hackers may have grabbed their personal information from their PlayStation Network accounts, and a US-based law firm has already filed a class action suit against them.

The Rothken Law Firm states that "One would think that a large multinational corporation like Sony has strong protective measures in place to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of personal information, including credit card information. Apparently, Sony doesn't."

If the lawsuit succeeds, any PlayStation Network user would be entitled to monetary compensation - something which could end up costing Sony billions of dollars.
