Legal So, there I am enjoying a nice Gilmore Girls episode after a long day's work, and Engadget's iPhone application brings the good news: the US Library of Congress has added a DMCA exemption for jailbreaking or rooting mobile phones! This is a major blow to Apple, who actively tried to keep jailbreaking a criminal offence, and a major win for everyone who believes that the phone you buy is actually yours, and not the manufacturer's.

Thank you Thom for getting out of your "OSNews hibernation". :-)

And obviously thanks go to the EFF, but maybe people shouldn't buy phones that need this (N900 anyone ?). :-)
