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.

Yeah well, it's a bit different if you take donation's and say you're gonna do one thing and then you do something else.
Let's hope he'll give people their donations back, what's left of it, otherwise he's just an ass.


Pretty sure he said settlement was an option - but on "his terms". Since we don't know all the details of the settlement (they're "confidential") - it's hard to say if he did that ;)

Otherwise, he did also say that any left over donations after his legal fees were paid would go to EFF.

Pretty sure all of that was specified up front...
