*gulp*

Nah, they wouldn't be that strict... I'm a responsible 14 year old. Trust me, I wouldn't leak anything...
Chances are... out of 15,000 participants, not all will be 18

Just keep in mind while you're using your older bros PSN account that if you break the rules in Home its your brother who will pay the price.


its a virtual world beta.. what's the worst thing he could do?


Sue your parents for loses inflicted by premature release of information and lose of trade secrets
think hundreds if not millions of dollars in fines against your parents.
 
 
but then again if you are using your older brothers account you should be fine as he is the account holder and in the EULA you will discover this nice little phrase.
 
  1. In keeping with the aim and spirit of the Trials, you must:
    1. keep the contents of the Trials confidential as between you and us and not discuss them with anyone beyond your close friends and family and other Trialists. In particular, neither you nor your friends and family shall discuss them with anyone linked to a competing format and/or any news and/or information services or on any chat-line (whether on television or radio, in newspaper or magazines, or via the Internet or any other medium).

your dad would be accepted (possibly as we don't know acceptance criteria) but you would be allowed to use it (as close friends and family are allowed to be exposed to PS Home))

THE GOOD NEWS IS:
 
Home will eventually be available to everyone in the world, and you will be able to talk to several people throughout the world at the same time for free.  And everything else home will eventually be able to do....
 
Patience.

That's why leaking confidential Home information or footage is a huge no-no...
Some popularity from people who didn't make it into the beta is heavily outweighed by fines and bans because you put the whole Home experience up for everyone to see
