You don't understand. This man has chosen to take the battle and fight Sony in court. This, of course, needs funding. This is a raid. He's the tank, and you are the healers.
And actually, what he did is legal under German law. He never spread any games, and research is perfectly fine. He did his thesis on hypervisors, so his work on running Linux on the PS3 hypervisor is covered by the protection for science in the German constitution. Furthermore, putting back Linux on a product that once was sold with Linux support and retroactively taken away is considered self defense in Germany. You're allowed to work around DRM for this purpose.
