GeoHot Donation Blog

GeoHot created his blog, GeoHot Got Sued on blogspot to help raise donations for upcoming legal fees. If you didn't realize, George Hotz is battling Sony for jailbreak firmware that he released. U.S. District Court has already ruled in Sony's favor in granting a temporary restraining order forcing Hotz to remove all mention of his jailbreak from the web.

According to GeoHot's blog:

"Sony has five lawyers, I have two, I'd like to level the playing field, and really get some hard hitters in there. I have already racked up over $10,000 in legal bills; donate whatever you feel like."

Jailbreaking deemed legal, Officially!

"For example, I believe Apple has every right to lock down their iPhone in the factory as much as they want, but once it's paid for and mine, I have the right to unlock it, smash it, jailbreak it, look at it, and hack on it."

Hopefully this court battle doesn't keep him from assisting in iOS jailbreaks in the future!
