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.

If jailbraking the iPhone would allow people to crash the transmitters, get free phone calls, send spam, molest minors what does it matter? What does this have to do with copyright? It is the Digital Millenium *Copyright* Act isn't it?

Or is it now the Digital Millenium Copyright, Telecomunications, Anti-Terrorism, Think of the Children and Anything Else we Choose to Think Up Act
