Legal "Sony has filed a new document arguing that the legal action against the noted hacker George Hotz should proceed in California. One of the arguments Hotz's legal team made against California's jurisdiction was the lack of a PlayStation Network account, which means he didn't agree to the Terms of Service, but now the company claims to have 'proof' that Hotz did in fact have a PSN account. An interview with a company based in California, and the number of downloads from California, are being used as evidence."

http://psx-scene.com/forums/f6/geohot-flees-south-america-83925/ should provide more than enough insight to the actual case, like e.g. the claimed "hardware" Hotz didn't provide to Sony was just the HDD controller card, nothing more, and it has been given to them already.

Taken from the link above:

As for Sony's claims that Hotz has a PSN account under the name "Blickmaniac," they should probably take a closer look at the forum post they are using as evidence, since the geotag in the picture posted by the user leads to Cambridge, MA. That's not even close to New Jersey the last time we checked. So, yeah, life's good.


So yeah, that quite ruins that angle, too.

Yet again another example of "reporting things only from one angle and completely ignoring the opposing angle." And way to go Sony, like you haven't ever done anything wrong..
