Geohot has take a pretty respectable decision, Geohot donated the remaining amount of money which he had collected via donations from people helped him for fighting against Sony to EFF.
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.He had earlier asked his readers to stay tuned to find out, what he’s going to do with the amount. Sony and GeoHot had come to an settlement last week, wherein Sony settled the case against him, while Gehot was permanently ordered to not tamper or use any present or future Sony products, including the PS3.
This money goes to the EFF in hopes that America can one day again be a shining example of freedom, free of theDMCA and ACTA, and that private interest will never trump the ideas laid out in the constitution of privacy, ownership, and free speech.
