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.

Honestly, who cares? The people that would have done it "illegally" would have done so anyway, and it's unlikely Apple would have ever gone after them.


Don't forget that someone should also care for the people who publish the information and software to actually do a jailbreak.
