  • Geohot Responds to Sony Lawsuit via Rap


    Geohot is no stranger to legal troubles. His latest problems with the law involve Sony suing him for violation of the DMCA, computer fraud and copyright infringement. They have been granted a temporary restraining order which “forbids him from distributing the jailbreak, helping or encouraging others to jailbreak, and distributing information they've learned during the creation of the jailbreak,” according to his Wikipedia page.

    The courts have also ordered Geohot to hand over all computers and storage media used in the creation of any jailbreaking software to Sony’s lawyers. I know I would have a hard time handing over all of my computer equipment to a bunch of lawyers. In response to Sony’s allegations Geohot has posted his opinion on the matter on YouTube. For those of you who enjoy reading along with the lyrics:

    Yo it’s geohot
    And for those who don’t know
    I’m getting sued by Sony
    Let’s take this out of the courtroom and into the streets
    I’m a beast, at the least, you’ll face me in the northeast
    Get my ire up, light my fire
    I’ll go harder then Eminem went at Mariah
    Call me a liar
    Pound me in the *** with no lube, chafing
    You’re ******* with the dude who got the keys to your safe and
    Those that can’t do bring suits
    Cry to your Uncle Sam to settle disputes
    Thought you’d tackle this with a little more tact
    But then again fudgepackers, I don’t know Jack
    I shed a tear every time I think of Lik Sang
    But **** man, they’re a corporation
    And I’m a personification of freedom for all
    You fill dockets, like that’s a concept foreign to y’all
    While lawyers muddy water and TROs stall
    Out of business is jail for me
    And you’re suing me civilly
    Exhibit this in the courtroom
    Go on, do it, I dare you

      That's some funny ****... In my opinion jailbreaking devices only increases their sales also look at Microsoft with the 360. You never hear about them going after anyone.. They just updated their firmwares and ban modders.

      Sony has no sense of humor. They are corporate moguls, bottom-line driven and highly protective. Jobs and Apple don't seem so bad now; all they do is play "Cat & Mouse". Sony wants GeoHot's head on a plate.

Sounds like Sony needs to get off the cotton Pony and let Geo be. Awesome rap Geo, you are a GOD, screw them ambulance-chasing leeches!
      Agreed.

We understand that it voids our warranty but that's a risk we're willing to take to have the device that WE want. Leave us be!
      Largely I believe in what you are saying. The console market is a strange one, however. They sell their hardware for less than or equal to cost with the assumption that they recoup this all on software.

      I see a couple scenarios here:
      1) we cause home gaming to nose-dive and people close shop (already happened to SEGA for largely these reasons - which is why they are solely a third party now).

      2) Everything (and I mean everything) hardware becomes rented... sort of like DVRs are from many cable companies.

      3) You sign a clause stating that you agree not to tamper with the copyright software (that is their true worry here, NOT that you are jailbreaking the thing)

      Either way, it's clear that Sony is just trying to make an example of the kid. Bottom line is if people work on breaking down the walls of anti-piracy, these console makers are going to decide it isn't profitable enough for them to be in the market in the first place.
