Geohot donates remaining legal funds to the EFF

Today we have learned from the official Geohot blog that he apparently has given away the remaining of his legal funds to the EFF, here is the exact quote from the Geohot's blog:

Geohot goes to say: "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."

The hacker claimed that the intend of the money goes to the EFF in hopes that someday the DMCA and ACTA will be extinct, and that private interests will not triumph against freedom. He seems to think that he has won the case and that he has set a precedent for others to keep on hacking the PS3 and that research on security will continue, even if he is not the one doing the research. "Once the code works they will never be able to take it away from us" he said.

He even goes on posting what it looks like a payment receipt for the amount of $US10,000 payable to the EFF. We have a screenshot of it here. Let's all hope that this is really what went on and that we can all move on from the Geohot vs. Sony battle. Let us know what you think on the comments section below
