Geohot Donates $10,000 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation

Geohot has given the money left over from the donations to his legal defense against Sony (which didn’t end as well as hoped) to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting digital rights. The EFF will undoubtedly use the $10,000 to support the hacking of electronics and attempt to prevent future Geohotian situations.

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.

At the end of the day, something I take comfort in. The PS3 got OWNED.
“Once the code works they’ll never be able to take it away from us.”

Will you be continuing your work on Sony products anonymously?
Nah. As much as I don’t respect the goons at Sony, I do respect the court.
