Legal After news of the settlement between Sony and George Hotz came out, we had a few unhappy people complaining about how Hotz would now keep all the money donated to him, that he would run off to some tropical island, never to be heard from again. Well, as it turns out, Hotz has actually kept his word: he donated all the leftover donated money to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Sony outright won this one, escaping the bad PR was just a bonus

RE[5]: Good news - outright win?

I think an "outright win" for a company as big as Sony would be a decisive legal outcome including an outright ban on device owners tampering with there purchases. What they got instead was an indecisive outcome that allowed both sides to step back with some compromises.
