Sorry for the dumb question but what exactly does this mean for the future of hacking

I think she effectively denied it. The stuff has been up for more than a week now. And because of the declining it can be for probably a few more. Meanwhile it is getting mirrored all over the place. I'm even thinking about printing our the keys on a t-shirt
(strictly for personal use - no monetary gains involved - plz don't sue me Sony )
Luckily, loosing this case full of obviously ridiculous and bogus charges that seek to do nothing short of denying consumers their dollar-given rights will mean Sony will have to pay the defendant's legal fees. Geohot shouldn't be out of pocket for anything apart from the fuel or taxi fare to get to and from the court room.

Sony can't deny they knew full well it was entirely bullshit.
Nothing. Why would a comment mean anything for the 'future of hacking'? If you're talking about Sony's lawsuit, its probably going to scare future sony hackers. But, thats only if Geohot loses and I dont think that would happen when Mr.Kellar is the attorney.
