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.

Well, let's not judge until you or I get the full might of a massive corporation on our ass. Remember - WE live in relatively sane Europe, but he lives in the US. I would not like the prospect of going to court in the US with a large company.

Well, he already had the legal fees covered, so it would have only been a long and annoying hassle, it wouldn't have had much other effect than being tiresome.
