The federal judge hearing Sony's copyright suit against PlayStation 3 jailbreakers declined to vacate a ruling that hacker George Hotz turn over his computer gear to the console maker, Wired.com reported.

An attorney for Hotz, aka, GeoHot, argued during a hearing in San Francisco on Thursday that the ruling, issued two weeks ago, should be reconsidered because it would allow Sony to observe all his client's files.

“That’s the breaks,” US District Judge Susan Illston said, according to Wired.com.

Illston, however, went on to slightly modify her order that Hotz “retrieve” the code from anybody he may have forwarded it to.

“It’s information,” she was quoted as saying. “It can’t be retrieved. It’s just not practical. What would they do, Xerox it and mail it back?” ®
