    Great win, but really doesn't change anything...apple will continue trying to prevent jailbreaks.

    A real win would be locking phones to be made illegal.

    It should. Yes they don't benefit, but every other phone i've purchased from AT&T, i've been able to call customer service and request the subsidy unlock code from them. Every single time, i've gotten them unlocked except with the iPhone. Since i'm in the military, I tell them i'm travelling overseas and need it unlocked. Hopefully, this will force them to fork over code.

    No. Quality and security control are important. I understand why apple does what it does, but that doesn't mean that jailbreaking and installing these apps isn't worth the risk.

    I was arrested because someone called the cops and said I have jailbroken my iPhone from Apple's Penitentiary. Now with this new law I'm FREE.

    Threads merged. Messany, feel free to edit/add to the original post on an article of an already covered topic, but don't got ahead and fragment the same news on two different articles/threads

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    I can't wait to see all the BS spewed against jailbreaking over at the MacRumors forums about this. Those guys spit blood when jailbreaking is brought up. Most of those guys consider jailbreaking the same as holding up a liqour store at gunpoint! The idiots are waist deep over there.

    So does this mean we get warranty service if we jailbreak? I mean if it's legal now, warranty is not void right?

    Default Does Library of Congress make law?

    And there was much rejoicing!
    As interesting as this is I have some questions.....

    1) As far as I know, Library of Congress has no power to make or enforce laws

    »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_of_Congress

    While it appears they can make recomendations for changes to existing law - it would require Congress to create/modify such law and the President to sign the law. Challenges would then come via the courts.

    2) Copyright violations are decided by the Judicial branch by making decisions which wegh current law against accepted legal decisions. Again - the courts have the final say based on the law - not what the Library of Congress says....

    Am I missing something here - I am not a lawyer but did pay attention in civics class

    maybe, maybe not. It's perfectly legal to hit your laptop with a hammer, but I doubt they'd honor a warrenty on it with a huge hole in the case.

    YAAAA! It's about time! Even though that doesn't change anything, I'd jailbreak even if it was illegal
