Geohot Closes First Round of Donations - Legal Fees Covered
The other day, we reported
on geohot's request to the community to help his legal cause with donations. With the help of some of our very own members, along with many other generous people, geohot has received the amount of donations he was hoping for. He has temporarily closed donations for the time being, as his legal bills are covered for now. In his public statement on Geohot.com, he states "Expect to see a few more lawyers on my responses!" It's refreshing to see that his legal battle is starting to become more of a fair fight, all thanks to the community's generous donations.
First round of donations is closed
Thank you so so much for all of your help, things are looking up money wise. Expect to see a few more lawyers on my responses!
I have enough to cover my legal fees for the time being, and in the absolute worst case scenario, we don't want Sony getting it :-P
For now, the best thing you can do is spread the word
Let people know how Sony treats customers
Let people know Sony would rather sue than be proactive and try to fix the problem
Let people know about laws like the DMCA which stifle innovation, and don't do anything to fix the problems they were created to solve
