Sony vs. Geohot Litigation Settled: The Winners and Losers

In a somewhat surprising turn of events Sony has settled its dispute with George Hotz over the publication of a jailbreak for the Playstation 3 which has opened the door to hackers and pirates alike. But in this case’s aftermath, who has come out better off and who has left bruised and scuffed?

The story is too old to be commented.

Hopefully we don't hear from this dude again for a good long time. Even though he got off pretty easy, I think it may make him think twice about being so public about his escapades in the future.

The guy got pwned, they actually mananged to put the guy in his place.

From the settlement he cant touch any sony product ever again or else he will be fined up to 250.000$.

That was sony objective all along so...

Pretty sure Sony won the case from the read verdict. Hackers suck and ruin the fun for everyone.
