Android hacker Koushik Dutta has turned down a potentially lucrative job offer from Sony because he, "in good conscience", cannot work at Sony due to the company's "recent treatment of fellow hacker, George Hotz (@geohot")". Sony recently sued geohot for his efforts on jailbreaking the PS3.
Koushik Dutta publishes a blog detailing Android hacking techniques, and it is his work here that has attracted Sony's attention, offering the hacker a Software Engineering job at Sony's R&D team.
Geohot once taunted Sony by saying that the company should hire him, not sue him, if they really wanted to protect the PS3 against hacking. Sony is actually using this email against geohot in the PS3 jailbreaking trial as evidence of geohot's intentions to blackmail Sony for financial reasons.
