    Default 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

    Ummm wow, I don't even know how to respond to this lol! It's good to see he's humorous through all this stuff...it's ridiculous what Sony's doing, we all have the right to jailbreak devices that we've paid for. 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!

    It would be so cool if Sony responded using one of their big rappers Like Jay-Z or someone.

    Default F U Sony!
    Sony is just pissed because Geohot is superior to every engineer and brain surgeon they have (no offense, Sherif). These corporate scumbags with their inferior security measures should either be hiring Geo or thanking him for keeping them on their "game". They OBVIOUSLY can't compete. 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!
