Finally its over now we can move on with our lives.
So, what really happened? Is this thing finally over?
Finally. We all knew he would be fine in the end.
Now stop giving him money for vacations, people.
It appears that Hotz did NOT win, but he "got off easy". He's not paying sony anything and all he's doing is removing the keys from his site that have been posted everywhere else on the net anyway.
Not exactly a victory like the Iphone hacking case was, but at least it wasn't a huge loss.
In short: Sony had no legal ground to stand on, but had the money to bury Hotz in legal proceedings.
God Bless America.
So it was basically a tie. Sony got what they wanted which was to slap around the community to make a impression, and hotz didnt go to jail or forced to pay a huge amount of money to sony.
So it was basically pointless.
well, not exactly. TONS of money was wasted too!
God Bless America indeed.
I wonder what this means for the future.
Waste of time and money. -_-
absolutely nothing. We're literally back to square one.
I don't think it means anything.
So then I guess the whole case was pointless and both sides just spent an unnecessary amount of money. The keys are already online so making Geohotz take them off (his site) isn't gonna do jack shit.
you pretty much just summed the whole thing up.
Wonder what Anon will think of this. Now THERE's something tough to predict.
How do you know ? You are not psychic anyway. We shall wait and see.
I always thought Hotz was a douche, but now I know he is a sell out as well!
Sony is trying to make an example of him and the rest of the scene, selling out is the same as letting them WIN!
Stuff taken from Geohots blog:
OK, you try and be in his position; you're 20 years old being sued by a huge corporation. They give you an opportunity to end the case, would you not take it?
Seems fair enough all-in-all. The way this was going and Hotz's Youtube rapfest made me wonder if they'd take it personally but it would appear that he got off lightly.
Wonder what he'll progress to do next?
HaHa knew he would crack under the pressure.
so what do we get out of this?
