Pictured below, if you check the properties of the MP3 download you will notice what appear to be PS3 file offsets despite some speculating they may be 3.56 Keys.

The video is below, and from his page:

I am subject to the TRO
But they ain't copping my computers
The dongle key tweet was mad funny... can't link to it

Apparently linking to the official PlayStation Blog, referred to as "a site", is a desire to continue circumventing (see this page 4,11)

I'm amazed they would actually bring that up and not be laughed out of court... free speech is dead
It clearly was to parody (protected speech) the ridiculousness of the campaign to censor the internet
Can anyone really not find the metldr key?

geohot lights it up

I told this 2 weeks before Hot got sued, and I'll say it again: the only enemy of a man is his own ego. This is a lesson to you smart, but still young guys: be quiet. Learn.

Sony has billion of dollars in this game. It's a big company reputation. The lawyers cost a penny for them, and for Hotz, maybe he got one or two people work for him. Sadly.

Hotz lawyers are still lost in this case. If they found copyright software on Hotz drives, oh man! An entire life completely lost. The scene must remain, but not private, just anonymous. That's my opinion.

And just a question: why did Gerge Hotz used his own name? He never listened about nicknames? Oh ego, ego, ego...

God bless Hotz, and God bless the people from Japan who's suffering a lot these days. Peace.

WAYY too long to read, but I read it all. Definitely, I agree that Sony was making some ridiculous protests, and then as said above, misrepresenting data that has been put forth to otherwise incriminate geohot.

They thought they had the big guns and no weak spot, looks like geohot's lawyers, or himself have just found that spot.

Geohot: Inifinity
Sony: 0

Today [Register or Login to view links] reports that PS3 hacker GeoHot is now accusing Sony of "false representations" to the court and petitioning for a protective order while [Register or Login to view links] confirmed that SoftLayer is moving to quash Sony's subpoena on George Hotz Forum account details in the pending PlayStation 3 hacking case despite their recent PayPal victory.

To quote from Groklaw: "Specifically, Hotz says that Sony Computer Entertainment America falsely claimed at a recent hearing that the Software Developer Kit at issue in this litigation referenced SCEA being in California. The SDK, Hotz says, is owned by Sony Computer Entertainment in Japan, and the installation procedures reference Sony Japan, not SCEA.

This is relevant, Sony argued, because if they found any of the SDK tools on his computer, it would "establish contacts between SCEA and Mr. Hotz" in that they claimed SCEA is the only entity distributing the SDKs. The discovery that the court ordered was based on SCEA's representations. Now what? Should the discovery even be allowed?

Hotz has filed a motion for a protective order, as the parties continue to wrangle about what should happen to Hotz's impounded hard drives. At the same time, SoftLayer Technologies has filed a motion to quash."

From Wired, to quote: "Dallas-based SoftLayer is the only company so far to object to subpoenas in the hotly contested Hotz case. The judge has signed off on Sony subpoenas to Twitter, YouTube, Google and PayPal as part of the console-maker's scorched-earth litigation tactics to win an unspecified amount of monetary damages from Hotz.

Thursday's legal tussle surrounds a SoftLayer subpoena approved by Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero of San Francisco two weeks ago. It demands "documents reproducing all server logs, IP address logs, account information, account access records, and application or registration forms" connected to Hotz's psx-scene.com account.

Sony wants those logs, and a record of all of his postings, to determine whether Hotz had logged in from the San Francisco area while trumpeting or posting his hack.

That data is at the center of a jurisdictional argument whether Sony must sue Hotz in his home state of New Jersey rather than in San Francisco, where Sony would prefer. SoftLayer objects to the subpoena on grounds that, among other things, it requires "disclosure of protected matter." No hearing date has been set."
