Sony Has The Permission Now To Access Geohot's Paypal Account

According to Wired, a federal magistrate said Sony may subpoena the PayPal account of the well-known PlayStation 3 hacker George Hots (aka Geohot). This came two weeks after Sony got the permission to track all IP addresses for anyone visited Geohot.com from January of 2009 onward.



The latest development allows the Japanese console maker to acquire “documents sufficientto identify the source of funds (.pdf) in California that went into any PayPal account associated with geohot@gmail.com for the period of January 1, 2009, to February 1, 2011,” Spero ruled.

Regarding the PayPal account, Sony claims Hotz has accepted monetary donations for the hack from people residing in Northern California — an argument that, if true, might make San Francisco a proper venue for the litigation.
