GeoHot To Transfer Money Collected For Lawsuit To EFF


by casey on April 18, 2011

As we already know that Sony vs GeoHot Lawsuit is finally over. George Hotz was facing a trial against Sony for jailbreaking PlayStation 3 firmware 3.55. Remember Hotz has asked his followers for donations to face the trial against Sony. As they have settled down now, he has decided not to return money to the people who have made the donation. He has transfered all the money which is $ 10,000 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation ( EFF ), which is an organization that fights for freedom in the world of technology.

This is what he has posted on his blog:

As promised, all left over legal defense money, plus a little to bump it to a nice number, has been sent to the EFF. Thank you all so much for your support, without it, things could have been much worse.

This money goes to the EFF in hopes that America can one day again be a shining example of freedom, free of the DMCA and ACTA, and that private interest will never trump the ideas laid out in the constitution of privacy, ownership, and free speech.
