Geohot Sets Up Legal Defense Fund

That amusing rap aside, things aren’t looking so rosy for famed iPhone and PS3 hacker George “Geohot” Hotz. While Hotz himself was hoping for a quick victory, Sony’s long-winded legal case shows no signs of letting up anytime soon. It’s becoming increasingly apparent that he’s in for the long haul. As a result, he’s now set up a defense fund to help cover court-related expenses, which are quickly piling up — currently, the total damage sits at around 10K according to Hotz.

In an update on his official site, Hotz criticizes Sony’s strong-arm tactics, in addition to outlining his intentions behind setting up the fund. Whether you like him or not, Hotz points out that consumer rights are at stake here, and we’re inclined to agree.

For those who wish to donate, hit up Geohot’s site. Otherwise, you can also help simply by spreading the word.
