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

yes gamesharing can get you suspended or even banned just stop doing it before you get caught.
also read you Manual as well as the Terms of Service for info on PSN and what you can and cant do

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
