GeoHot donates $10,000 to EFF
Geohot has donated the remaining amount of money, that he had collected via donations from people for fighting against Sony to EFF.
He revealed this in a blog post which stated:
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 theDMCA and ACTA, and that private interest will never trump the ideas laid out in the constitution of privacy, ownership, and free speech.
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.
