I will say that the overt ignorance and bigotry displayed regarding South American nations is rather disturbing. The US, UK, and Canada are not the only bastions of civilization in the world, nor are they the only places one can live comfortably.

No, it didn't.

Which means it's illegal not to show up, not that any other nation is going to give a damn, or that agents are going to be sent across international borders illegally to enforce a subpoena for a civil case.

De jure and de facto are rarely the same.

I've flaunted court summons successfully, without even having to leave the country. There are just two or three states I won't dare set foot in again.

Unless I've missed something GeoHot isn't accused of molesting children or trafficking in sex slaves (though it would not surprise me if someone chimed in about the obvious correlation between jailbreaking a PS3 and criminal sexual deviancy).

Yeah right...Sony is going to send a goon squad after GeoHot.

As for justice, well, we obviously don't have the same definition.

Uh, no. South America's police are more like paramilitary. They don't just drive around with handguns strapped to their sides. They do have semi-automatic rifles. South American police are pretty hardcore. They usually don't mess with tourists, but when someone is out of the norm they can tell.

You can't avoid the system mate, what he did was waste money on the trip, he will be coming back most likely.

In the event that he doesn't by chance, I wouldn't want to be in South America, not at this time, no way... I think some people may be ignorant to the fact that there is A LOT of gangs, crime, and drug rings in South America, furthermore, kidnapping and many horrible lawless acts are committed in most of the countries of South America every day! It's a travesty what transpires south of the border... I have family from South America and they tell me all the time that it's bad, as in real bad, down there... In some countries that last thing you want to be is an American, he will be the target of every gang and thief that lays eyes on him unfortunately...

He should have waited till after this had all cooled off, stashed his Cash away hiding it from prying eyes, and then made plans to escape the Corporate Run America polluted by treasonous dogs...

Hahaha well lets just say that if you get caught with weed in El salvador you are facing probably a couple of years of jail time. In canada they may just take it away from you and give you a warning.

Of course piracy means nothing in El salavdor either. I can buy pirated movies or games or music CDs in front of a cop but that's because they can't control it. People need to make money somehow and not many people at all have money to buy a $60 game or a $20 music CD when they make $150 a month

But if someone is wanted in another country and the local police there gets the report and he's seen, I bet that he will be caught and brought back to where he's wanted

If he wanted to use his PS3 to the fullest potential fine. Either write your own software or don't tell the world that your engaging in stealing Sony's intellectual property. Also he should be smart enough to know that this would lead to piracy and bad online play due to hackers. Which Sony can't ignore because of pressure from publishers to have a secure platform.
Your pretty lost in the whole situation. His argument from the beggining has always been the same.

-He found out how to load homebrew on linux when it was available. He knew how to backup games to the hdd, but stated he does not pirate or condone it.
-Sony locked down the system by removing other OS.
-He vowed to figure it out, because that was a feature he PAID for when he bought his ps3.
-Since then Sony has been on him, like flies on ****.
-Every move he has made Sony puts out a "security" update within 1-2 weeks.
-He discovered "the code"(lol), and released it.
-Hackers did other things with it, he just released it.

Which I see as fair. Sony made a big deal about the other OS and released my system with it, then takes it away?
Thats like buying a car with auto-park or GPS then the manufacture just removes it one day. BS.
I love sony products, but they are being douche bags.

FYI: GH kept an open offer for Sony to hire him on and he would help with the security of their system. He had that offer since the beggining and kept it even after the "war" started.

If Sony can push the request enough, it very well may happen, and Geo would then add evasion of justice to his burden.

Sony are gonna be screwed now, because Hotz can do whatever he wants from anywhere outside the US as far as hacking the PS3. Somebody inside the stupidity of Sony is doing fist pumps in the air, but they haven't realized the flip side of this, damn so now he's gonna hack us with a vengeance?
