Legal Yesterday, we linked to a story about the most recent allegations Sony made against George 'GeoHot' Hotz in their ongoing court case. Supposedly, Hotz has sabotaged the hardware he had to hand over, and he had fled the country to further stifle the court case, among other things. Hotz' lawyer, as well as Hotz himself, have responded to these allegations. The gist? They're all nonsense.

The best defense is a good offense

When Sony make allegations, he's forced into a defensive position. To me, when anybody's in a position of defending themselves against a barrage of accusations - true or false - it eventually whittles away your credibility. An unfortunate reality (well, more my perception than reality.)

This is the age of sound bites. Outside of court, defending one self in the media is wasted breath. It lends credibility to the accuser and diminishes your own.

Hotz needs accusations of his own and he should be unrelenting.
