You can't really blame him for selling out -- his butt was on the line. The only problem I see is that people donated to his legal fees under the impression that he'd go down fighting.

yea, I wouldn't have a problem with it, if he hadn't shown it as a fight against Sony to help set an important precedent, and asking for contributions toward that.


"Media, I need your help. This is the first time I have ever asked. Please, if you support this cause, help me out and spread the word," he wrote on his newest blog entry. "I want, by the time this goes to trial, to have Sony facing some of the hardest hitting lawyers in the business. Together, we can help fix the system."
