The thing is if they do win, they can then use that judgement to stop any and all subsequent applications which were made possible by it. As so many people have stated that it is his original 'hack' that made the development of CFW possible, it will be extremely hard to disprove that, even if an individual used his/her own methods with no recourse to Mr Hotz's information.
Cars etc are a different thing as they are not manufactured as a platform with the major, if not sole, purpose of other companies to make monies from.
That is The item on trial here. Whether what he has done was done with the intention of, or disregard to, depriving Sony and others from financial gain.
