What if SCEA tries to settle?Lets just say, I want the settlement terms to include OtherOS on all PS3s and an apology on the PlayStation blog for ever removing it. It'd be good PR for Sony too, lord knows they could use it. I'm also willing to accept a trade, a legit path to homebrew for knowledge of how to stop new firmwares from being decrypted.

quote: Liebeck sought to settle with McDonald's for $20,000 to cover her actual and anticipated expenses. Her past medical expenses were $10,500; her anticipated future medical expenses were approximately $2,500; and her loss of income was approximately $5,000 for a total of approximately $18,000. Instead, the company offered only $800. When McDonald's refused to raise its offer, Liebeck retained Texas attorney Reed Morgan.
quote: The reality was that it actually caused quite a bit of injury due to how incredibly hot the coffee was above McD's normal standards, and that they declined to pay for the damages it caused, instead trying to shoo her away with 800 dollars.If they dropped something that sounded a little more dangerous than coffee, yet at the same temperature, people wouldn't have batted an eye. People just misconstrued the suit as frivolous because of the headlines.
