Hmm, if I was Hotz lawyer, I would defend him for free if Hotz cannot afford it. This is a high profile case and a good chance of winning against a major corporation and making a name in the law field. If the lawyer wins this for Hotz...he will be sought after...am sure of that.
Is it failoverflow at the back? ;)

sony is fighting to say that they have full controll over all ps3's even AFTER you pay for it
now tell me that their still right?
its like putting in their terms/service agreement that it is against the agreement to play games on the system but leaving in the ability, then when you do, sending you to jail for it
or hp or dell or compaq saying in their term/service that it is illegal to open your computer & upgrade stuff, or formatting the hard drive on it
and when you do, sueing the ass off you
I for one would donate $30 a month to this guy until the case was over. And I'd hope many people would follow suit. Not only has this guy done a lot for us to deserve our help, it would further help ourselves to ensure the future of allowing us to do whatever we choose to our consoles, without having to worry about legal action.
So I hope that an official help Geohot help pay his lawyer fees so that Sony can't win, just because Geohot can't continue to pay lawyer fees, donation is set up. It would really show that we watch our own, and Sony is not just against Geohot, but the community that he supports.
If there is already such a fund setup for Geohot, please link me.
I would donate as well, but i have no source of income. Alas, Geohot does need some sort litigation funding set up.
I would love to donate, but he is not accepting for good reason. He was smart to not accept in the first place. It was funny to see $ony send a dollar to him through paypal and use that as evidence in court.
its pretty damn epic attacking SCEA as not having ownership of the PS3 patents or the PS3 itself. i would have never thought about that :)
when i readed about geo got the PRECIOUS key from the ps3, i dont known why i remember this on my mind...
