Apple The discussion around whether or not jailbreaking iPhones should be exempt from the DMCA has just reached a level of ridiculousness that words can't really describe any longer. As some of you might know, Apple and the Electronic Frontier Foundation are in a tussle with one another over whether or not the US Copyright Office should put an exemption in the DMCA allowing the jailbreaking of iPhones. Apple's reasoning for why no exemption should be made is rather... Over-the-top.

I eagerly wait the day you all be buying computers with preinstalled and locked-down software, not allowed to install other OSes, apps only available from one vendor, and you'll be paying a monthly fee for the whole pack of sh*t. And the best of all: you all will be happy with it and crowds of people will come up with hearty points about how all of it is so marvellous.

In the end, we all get what we deserve, either by actively seeking, or by not doing anything against.

Oh, I still fail to see how jailbraking is in any relation to copyright. This is stupid.
