Sony vs. Hotz Update: Giant Enemy Crab Seeks California Residents

March 15, 2011

The latest court documents obtained by PSX-SCENE reveal that the subpoena for information on Geohot’s PayPal account may be limited only to parties who sent money and reside in California and only funds that were sent prior to the legal fund donations.

Quote:

THE COURT: Okay. All right. Well, then, I’ll limit it, as requested. I will limit it to documents sufficient to identify any source of funds in California that went into that PayPal account — any PayPal account associated with
geohot at gmail dor com for the period January 1, ’09, to February 1, ’11. And ask the plaintiff to redraft their subpoena accordingly.


There is also some clarification in the court transcript as to what Sony will be looking for on Hotz’ personal computer.

Quote:

That’s right. We’re just trying to establish that that computer somehow hooked up to the PSN; the PlayStation Network. Additionally, we’re looking for information, such as any of the Sony Developer Kit tools that might be contained on that computer. That information would only be distributed by Sony Computer Entertainment America, and would establish contacts between SCEA and Mr. Hotz.

…at the end of the day, he would have something belonging to SCEA that he should have licensed.

And one of his contentions is that he’s not aware of Sony Computer Entertainment America being in California. And we believe that the SDK — the developer’s kit — would contain information showing him that SCEA is in California.
