It's also moronic to think that every judge is being payed off when they are siding with someone that you don't believe is right.

This thread should be closed as it violates OCN's ToS anyways by discussing Politics. Which this thread obviously is.

Being able to afford a team of talented lawyers that gives you an advantage is not the same as buying the courts/judges. I don't think that Sony has specifically bought anyone. Sure the industry as a whole has unfair and overly broad influence because of the lobbying they can afford to do, but that's not the same either.

Personally, I do not think there is anything wrong with jailbreaking hardware/firmware. I feel that laws that prohibit this sort of thing a unjust and unreasonable.

I do not think GeoHot was wrong to break the law, or to try to avoid unjust consequences.

He obviously made many foolish errors that lead Sony to be able to identify and prosecute him, but leaving once he realized his case was unwinnable was probably the smartest thing to do. Whether he's got the will and the sense to make his current situation work is anybody's guess.

He done flagged the thread.

You know the saying: Play with fire and you're going to get burned.

On an individual note I feel bad for him, but as far as running a business goes I think Sony is doing the right thing. If one person pretty much unlocked the your property to steal so much of your money, can you blame them?

That was the dumbest thing to do. Had he won the case, he could've counter sued Sony for damages and made A WHOLE LOT OF MONEY.

He ran because he is an arrogant coward and won't own up to his mistakes.

Sure: There's no proof and no claim from anyone worth mentioning that they did.

You guys brought in the argument that Sony paid off the courts. Back that up with proof. It's not OUR job to show you that they didn't, just as it works in court: innocent until proven guilty. "I didn't do it, you'll have to show proof to the judge that I did, and then I may respond and provide proof against that to negate your proof."

+1. Geohot was in a bad place from the start.

Have you ever heard of the rules of Supply & Demand?

When you can get everything for free online anyway, what demand would there be? Even kids know how to download stuff or stream it online for free.

There is a lot of money being pushed to end piracy, don't forget that Microsoft and many other major corporations, like ISPs are being fed this money too, so the end of piracy is not far off, of this, I'm fairly certain...

If they throttle and cap the hell out of the internet, that's going to make it really hard for pirates... Considering they are already monitoring traffic like a hawk and in the process of making just streaming illegal content a felony, that means many people would be terrified to upload anything...

Not to mention that they are seizing websites much faster now that they have full authority to do so, the end of piracy is a battle I think the movie & music industry would be willing to pay many billions of dollars to see...

Considering how much money these corporations make every year from the entertainment industry alone, I doubt pirates will be able to continue for much longer..

I could be wrong in my assessment of the situation, but GeoHot is a prime example of what they are willing to do to put an end to piracy, and apparently that means even going after kids too.. (Parents beware!)

Now that we have heard the story of GeoHot and how it will probably end, bad, we can either gleam some wisdom from all of this, or refuse to hear the corporations' money which is screaming pretty darn loud right now..

When billions of dollars are up for grabs you can rest assured the real hackers out there will be hard at work in claiming some of the prize money to end piracy. Of this I'm 100% certain...

I think Google, Microsoft, the Clouds, and many other important corporations like the ISPs are going to come up with a solution soon enough, the only question that remains is, what will it be?

Yeah but they were aware of PSP jailbreaking as well, but made no actions then. I think they did this due to something other than protecting their systems security. I think they are doing it more as retaliation for GH making them look like a bunch of donkeys. imo

Instead of going after him, why not just hire him? Plenty of top companies have hired hackers to their security teams.
