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.

...answer one simple question.

Could the things that they claim occur?

If the answer to this question is yes - regardless of the LIKELIHOOD of it occurring - then Apple have every right to use the points as arguments for their case. The likelihood of any or all of these things happening will be taken into consideration by the authority making the decision. If their claims are impossible then you can rightly call them fud. If, however, their claims could be substantiated it isn't them using fud for their own agenda...
