According to a post on the official PlayStation blog, litigation between Sony and hacker George “GeoHot” Hotz has been settled with the latter agreeing to a “permanent injunction.”

In a joint statement, the parties announced the settlement of the lawsuit filed by Sony against Hotz in federal court in San Francisco. The statement goes on to read, “Both parties expressed satisfaction that litigation had been quickly resolved.”

“Sony is glad to put this litigation behind us,” said Riley Russell, General Counsel for SCEA. “Our motivation for bringing this litigation was to protect our intellectual property and our consumers. We believe this settlement and the permanent injunction achieve this goal.”

“It was never my intention to cause any users trouble or to make piracy easier,” said Hotz, “I’m happy to have the litigation behind me.”
