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.

RE[4]: My take

Lol, I have a question for you - have you actually ever been involved in a lawsuit? Seriously?

Have you actually been to court?

The answer is no to both of these questions, I simply don't do anything interesting or am anybody worth suing.

While I personally think Geohot should have pushed on, at the end fo the day, I'm not in his shoes, so I'm not going to begrudge his call.

I know going to court and fighting over it is really draining and I never claimed the contrary. But well, Geohot himself proclaimed himself the champion of consumer rights, kept on saying he'll fight the fight to the end, hell, have you seen that stupid rap video he made? If he hadn't been boasting like that people would have reacted differently. It's all his own doing right now.
