Sony will claim victory and the moral high ground. They will cite GeoHot's flight as evidence of his guilt, the untenability of his legal position, and hail the whole thing as a victory for IP holders everywhere.

They are likely hoping he stays beyond the court's grasp, because it means they don't have to blow millions and millions of dollars persecuting him. Sony knows full well they could never come close to breaking even in court, no matter how favorable the judgment.



You watch way too many crime/conspiracy dramas.
They weren't trying to break even. They didn't expect to get any real sum of money from some 21 year-old punk. They wanted to set a precedent.

Yea, the second someone started to get wind of any of it I would have dumped it. I personally heard there are lots of hackers in Russia from our FBI consultant.

That's essentially what I just said.

They can now have their precedent at a lower cost.

Sony already bought the judges and the courts.

Do you have any actual proof of that? If no, then knock it off.

Money can buy you a lot of things in the USA. If judges can be bought in other countries, what makes the USA special enough for that to not be the case?
