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.

Apple loses control over the iOS platform and can't lean on people using the law. This means that it is a potential loss of sales through the iTunes store due to the alternative stores such as Cydia and Iphonexe.

There, no clouding.
