    GeoHot’s Legal Defense Fund – GeoHot Needs Your Help To Fight Sony

    It seems that GeoHot is having a little trouble with funds and with $10,000 in debt already incurred by lawyer fee’s, he is asking for your help, here is what he said on his website, remember if he wins, we all win, so every little helps:




    geohot got sued
    legal trouble

    Media, I need your help. This is the first time I have ever asked. Please, if you support this cause, help me out and spread the word.
    I want, by the time this goes to trial, to have Sony facing some of the hardest hitting lawyers in the business.
    Together, we can help fix the system

    Donations here are for legal defense ONLY
    I checked with my lawyers before setting this up
    If you have another substantial way to donate aside from money, let me know

    Donated to Geohot, tough decision between donating to Wiihacks or Geohot.

    I say there is a 90% chance sony wins, 5% chance they settle for something, 5% chance geohot wins. They say Sony has 5 lawyers, probably a few dozen chinese people reading every american law book possible searching for every possible loophole availabe. Besides, a few of the things he says sony is doing and they are bad for doing it are in the Terms of Service. Thats like saying "I bought gold from a gold farmer in WoW and i got banned. Blizzard can't do that!!!!" But if we look at the TOS they say we can't do that.

    I find it mildly entertaining that the same guy who up and walked away from the scene two years ago, after getting Linux removed from the system as a consequence of his unfinished hack, is now asking the same people he abandoned back then for help because he got in over his head this time around. All in the name of the 'little guy,' no less.

    This story is going to turn into a circus of epic proportions. Cirque du Sony? lol

    Actually, now that i think about it there is a show on tv called "Harry's Law" and there was a fat person suing the fast food companies. The fat persons excuse was "its addicted and made me fat and i had a heart attack" They somehow managed to win that case, maybe they are hoping for a repeat of this episode in a real court system.
