Hey i just bought a PS3 a few months ago and so far i am liking it but i wanna know what are the no no's of PSN as in how do i know whats allowed and not allowed? i of course know hacking, cheating and anything that involves game exploits is bannable but what else should i watch out for?
also i have a small question a friend of mine on my local forum gave me his account and from that i downloaded a few games i didn't know what this was and later on learned it was called gamesharing at first i **bleep** brix and was worried whether this is bannable or not, some people told me including my friends that the games are valid for up to 5 activations and so far he hasn't used any other activation, now the question is will i be in trouble? will i get banned permanently or temporarily
there are also certain arguments that game sharing is only illegal if you ILLEGALLY acquired the game off a persons i.e without their consent where as if it done with the consent of the primary account its okay
i hope i can get some quick help, thank you
If you want to really know what causes a PSN ban, read the Playstation Network terms of service and user agreement. Pay special attention to the "Community Code of Conduct". Here is a link PSN user agreement

thanks bronx but that still doesn't answer my question that will i get a permanent ban or a temporary ban? I cant seem to relax since i found this was not allowed =( this is my first 3rd gen console and i honestly did not know it was illegal
Things like mouthing off to people on a game, bullying, inappropriate messages/pictures, hacking, etc..
You could read about it in the TOS or something,. try the support page, that gives info @ bans

i am pretty sure i won't do abusing or stuff like that cause i only message my PSN friends and i don't voice chat as well in MP games and i never exploit or hack. but this gamesharing thing has me down =(
P.s i just found this
Approved by Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Sony announced that players who download games from PlayStation's online shop can share them on up to five other PS3 machines.
If a player logs into his PlayStation 3 account on a friend's system, he can download any game he has already purchased. "You can send that content to four other friends for that initial investment," said Tretton. "We want to get the game in as many hands as possible." "It's not about generating profits at each and every interaction with the consumer," he said. "I think that really offsets the argument that says, 'Wow, that's a really pricey system.'"
