If a court mandates that he hands over his hardware, then it's not asking him to do so, it's telling him to do so. Not doing so by leaving the country is a flagrant disregard for the law and the court. Which is a CRIMINAL act and not a civil one.
It's a shame that he couldn't have just created his own OS to throw on the machine instead of completely manipulating Sony's code. I really wish he'd done that, it would save a lot of hassle on both sides and those that want to run Linux on the PS3 (the whole 1-2 million people that actually wanted to prior to this).
I'm not on any bandwagon. In fact I can guarantee I've read more into this than you or the majority of his "followers" have. Troll elsewhere mcnubbins.
i have read all the articles that have "involved" this case.
i've been in civil litigations and have been sued before...
i at least know the difference between civil and criminal law, you've already showed you ignorance of this:

you can't go to jail for loosing a civil case, you aren't even found guilty or innocent of a crime, just liable or not liable for damages (typically you amend for the damages by reward of a monetary settlement).
in a civil case, the "burden of proof" isn't even "beyond reasonable doubt", it is "preponderance of evidence" and "clear and convincing evidence".
so i'm trolling cause my opinion of the matter differs than yours, and what i took from reading the articles, differ than yours...no where in the current article does it state that any court of law has said he has "fled" to avoid this case, sony has made the claim:
"After Magistrate Judge Spero ordered an inspection of Hotz's devices and ordered Hotz to appear at a deposition in California, SCEA learned that Hotz had deliberately removed integral components of his impounded hard drives prior to delivering them to a third party neutral and that Hotz is now in South America, an excuse for why he will not immediately provide the components of his hard drives as requested by the neutral," the motion read.
The Actual Sony Motion
Though the evidence establishing personal jurisdiction is already overwhelming,
SCEA has little doubt that there is much more. However, over the last several weeks
Hotz has engaged in a campaign to thwart jurisdictional discovery at every turn –
regardless of whether the Court has ordered such discovery or not. Most seriously, after
Magistrate Judge Spero ordered an inspection of Hotz’s devices and ordered Hotz to
appear at a deposition in California, SCEA learned that Hotz had deliberately removed
integral components of his impounded hard drives prior to delivering them to a third party
neutral and that Hotz is now in South America, an excuse for why he will not immediately
provide the components of his hard drives as requested by the neutral. Hotz’s attempts
to dodge this Court’s authority raise very serious questions.
he actually has the right to appeal the subpoena for his harddrives, personal property, documents, etc...if i am not mistaken, his appeal hasn't been shot down yet, if i am please provide me with the correct link...so he can withhold that information till his appeal goes through, or the motion for appeal is shot down...
