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.

Court documents as psx-scene

If anyone is interested in seeing the scanned documents in PDF, they're attached to the article at psx-scene:

Interesting is that Hotz cannot gain "unauthorized access" to *any* Sony product, and cannot assist others to do so either.

He is also boycotting Sony as of today:

I started boycotting Sony back when they sued Lik-Sang into the abyss. Sadly, I've found it's nearly impossible to completely avoid giving money to them in some form or another. My most recent letdown was learning that the LCD screen in my Nokia N900 is a Sony OEM part. They really do have their hooks in the oddest of places in the tech world.

Seriously?! Damnit, you just made me feel dirty and vile for loving my N900 (well... more so than Nokia already has recently)
