We should boycott Sony products.

They are going after him because he is one of the biggest names in the jailbreak scene. If some no name hacker did it I doubt Sony would be going to this extent to sue the some guy for doing nothing truly wrong. Once again void warranty Sony isn't out any money for the device people are still buying games. All of this is stupid. I am sure geo is probably being cool about this. And I am sure he got a good lawyer who will defend him.
My question is what george looking at? Jail time, a fine, or just to be hassled?

What would they do if at least 60% of the nations hackers showed themselves at the trial?

Wow that's Fu**ed up !!!

He won't serve any jail time because they are suing him in civil court not criminal court. They haven't announced that they are seeking criminal charges against him so I don't know why you'd think he'd serve jail time.
Sony won't feel the hit if we boycott them because the majority of people that buy Sony products don't give a F about Geohot or this case and will still buy Sony products. We don't have enough sway to make a dent in their wallets and they know that.
Good luck to Geohot and I hope he wins this.

if we are going to boycott them then we have to also boycott their substrates just cuz it doesnt have a sony name on it doesnt mean they dont own it and there is quite a few of them and this has gone to far! i though it was too far when they got the ip addresses if we all band together against sony i think they would have to listen to us there is enuf in this jb community to make them hear us if we just let him go down with out a fight apple my do like sony is doing and sue the hackers it would stop the jailbreaking real quick we cant let it get that far tho we must stop sony now

Apple can't sue us to stop us from jailbreaking. There was already a law enacted that protects us. Plus the people that jailbreak iphones don't distribute keys like Geohot did. They just distribute software that allows jailbreaking. Geohot distributed the anti-piracy keys kinda like if someone cracked the DRM on itunes purchases and then distributed the keys to remove the DRM on those purchases.
Not quite the same thing.

Jesus ******* Christ!!!! This retard of a judge has way too much power. Geohot pissed Sony off so that gives them the right to pry into any aspect of his personal life they want? Geo needs to file a request for a new judge in a new venue because this isn't right. This judge gives Sony everything they want and there is no way geohot is going to get a fair trial. They need to take this to new jersey or another state where Sony isn't providing jobs for residents or tax income for that state. Sony is doing it in California because California needs all the jobs and income from taxes they can get. Cali doesn't want to piss Sony off because that means less money for their failing system. This is just ********, it's just a big company using money to push things in their favor.

This Judge is on Sony's Payroll...

Actually he gave out a proprietary Sony key of some sort. That's what I gather from reading about all this.

This is a war... It's too bad, but there will be casualties. Some people will take a bullet or a hundred round clip.

Effin Sony! Why not spend all their rediculous money and legal fees on helping their fellow countrymen or other human beings recover in Japan from disaster, rather than be like spoilt little kids about the whole thing. Whats next? Ford suing Xibit for modifying their cars on national TV?? I hope this hurts Sony's rep in a big way!!!

I would think that Sony getting his pay pal records would be invasion of privacy. Why should they be allowed to see that type of info.
