I don't understand where people get off on the fact that Geohot "stole" donations or used them in a way that wasn't stated on his webpage. Has it ever occured to everyone that he has to pay legal fees for hiring lawyers?
Any money left over Geohot will put to good use, NOT buying a brand new 100" flat screen television.

"he didn't do it for fame"
Really? You think that?

Just like anyone else who is proud of their hard work, he did it because he could and probably for notoriety. In the end, we're all guilty of vain now and then and I'm sure Geohot has learned from this and will quietly release his future PS3 jailbreaks spoofed through an alias running through a proxy(lol DidUSeeWhatIDidThere?)

This argument annoys me everytime I hear it. We don't bother to care about the corners big businesses cut until it comes back to bite us in the ***.

Regarding the copyright issue and the Sony EULA, it states that no part of the software may be disassembled, reverse-engineered, etc. or disessminated in whole or in part without Sony's express written consent.
Rootkeys are part of the software and thus are subject to this copyright. Argument settled.
Almost any EULA I've ever read includes this clause so Geohot knew he could get in some trouble but he release them anyway for the good of the people and hoped that people would put them to good use and not use them for piracy.
And for that, we thank you.
