Razboiul dintre geohot si Sony a luat sfarsit astazi cand cele 2 parti au ajuns la o intelegere. Deocamdata nimeni nu stie ce presupune mai exact intelegerea insa se pare ca geohot nu trebuie sa mai distribuie pe internet nici un fel de crack sau exploit privitor la produsele Sony. geohot a publicat pe blogul sau un post in care spune ca nu va mai cumpara nici un produs al Sony deci ori nu este prea multumit de intelegere ori prin intelegere este obligat sa nu mai cumpere nimic produs de Sony. Intelegerea intra in vigoare de astazi iar geohot scapa “basma curata” fara nici un fel de sanctiune din partea unei instante americane.
E greu de spus daca geohot va mai scoate vreodata vreo solutie de jailbreak pentru orice fel de produs avand in vedere reactia celor de la Sony insa stiu ca milioane de posesori de iDevices inca asteapta multe de la el. In curand geohot va publica pe blogul sau mai multe informatii despre procesul prin care a trecut.
Sony Computer Entertainment America (“SCEA”) and George Hotz (“Hotz”) today announced the settlement of the lawsuit filed by SCEA against Hotz in federal court in San Francisco, California. The parties reached an agreement in principle on March 31, 2011. As part of the settlement, Hotz consented to a permanent injunction.
Both parties expressed satisfaction that litigation had been quickly resolved. “Sony is glad to put this litigation behind us,” said Riley Russell, General Counsel for SCEA. “Our motivation for bringing this litigation was to protect our intellectual property and our consumers. We believe this settlement and the permanent injunction achieve this goal.”
“It was never my intention to cause any users trouble or to make piracy easier,” said Hotz, I’m happy to have the litigation behind me.” Hotz was not involved in the recent attacks on Sony’s internet services and websites.
In the action, SCEA accused Hotz of violating federal law by posting online information about the security system in the PlayStation 3 videogame console and software that SCEA claimed could be used to circumvent the security system in the console and allow the playing of pirated videogames. Hotz denies any wrongdoing on his part. Hotz’s motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction was still pending before the federal court in San Francisco but a preliminary injunction was issued requiring Hotz to take down the postings challenged by SCEA.
“We want our consumers to be able to enjoy our devices and products in a safe and fun environment and we want to protect the hard work of the talented engineers, artists, musicians and game designers who make PlayStation games and support the PlayStation Network,” added Russell. “We appreciate Mr. Hotz’s willingness to address the legal issues involved in this case and work with us to quickly bring this matter to an early resolution.”
