Legal Well, it seems like Sony vs. George Hotz has ended pretty much without a bang. Sony announced on its Playstation blog that the two parties have settled the case. Under the settlement, Hotz agrees to a permanent injunction fo his jailbreaking hack, but admits to no wrong-doing. A wise and, dare I say it, mature end to the lawsuit.

Hmm... I didn't see that part anywhere in the court documents.


Hmm... I guess I gotta correct myself, apparently many of the settlement details are "confidential", and excluded from the court documents. Per Hotz' Blog:

In general in court cases, the settlement agreement is not filed with the court. If a party is bound by an injunction, that would have to be made available on the public docket.


Guess we may never know what the results of the settlement were.
