I would think it'd be the exact opposite. Since your carrier pays for most of your phone, I'd think that jailbreaking it wouldn't be legal since you can do things with it to abuse the network and your carrier could have some say in how you use your device. You pay the full price for a tablet. Why shouldn't you be able to do what you want with it?

End of the day we basically need to show people want to jailbreak their iPads! Specially when you consider most iPads are bought out right and not paid for by a net work!

You should read the full 69 pages
It done because the iPad is a tablet
And there are other tablets that than just iPad so ruling was to make sure jailbreak developers do not make jailbreaks for other tablets because some may jailbreaking all tablets
Is legal but is not legal just idvices
But not iPads

This is why EULA, TOS, etc on consumer level products like software, games, and such are legally bogus, since they are presented AFTER the point of purchase. And no, this is NOT the same as the so called "shrink-wrap" license agreements, when in and of themselves have always been legally questionable. The only time such "you-don't-own-it" type licensing really becomes meaningful is when you have a REAL contract, such as for business level software et al, when an actual contract is signed as part of the purchase itself, not just an EULA shown afterwords when you load it up.

@znbl, well, you might want to tell the DMCA because if the above is true then making iPad JB illegal isn't even possible.

So now, together with the increasingly difficult to exploit platform now this legal hoo-hah, its even less incentive for the devs to release a jailbreak.
There is a solution worst case scenario: Tablet jailbreak/rooting goes underground. shared on peer-to-peer platforms etc
It doesn't matter if you don't care. If the devs don't do it. we're out of luck. Unless you're a developer yourself. Many devs (who are situated in the US) will not release the hacks illegally.
hmmmmmm....after heavily investing in apps and tweaks, (App Store & Cydia) I'm now stuck on the inferior iOS platform (it can't do flash people!). I'm really hoping this all blows over. because if I can't jailbreak I'd have to jump to Android. I like my freedom!
