Lol, loving how Geo is potentially only screwing HIMSELF by pointing out that Sony Japan should be the one fighting him. If that's what he wants, I hope that's what he gets. It was kind of pointless bringing that up though because he committed the crime within the US. Sony California is still Sony and so long as they do have authorized control of Sony software they can take action themselves.
US prisons really are a joke compared to prisons in other countries. US prisons are covered by billions of our tax dollars to make sure every prisoner has a cozy cell with 3 warm meals a day. It's ridiculous, really, but there's no other way to get the funding for it. Either kill every prisoner (not going to happen in the US) or house them in a prison with tax money. That aside, I don't think Geo would be going to PRISON over this. He's more likely to be paying off his crime for the rest of his life than to be imprisoned.
Question is, why California?
