Legal "It's possible to use Apple's iPods and iPhone with third-party software, and BluWiki's users wanted to make sure the world could find out how. Apple, however, was not fond of the situation and threatened BluWiki with legal action if the information was not removed. Now, BluWiki's operators are suing Apple in hopes of protecting the free speech of their users and getting a declaratory judgment that posting information does not violate the DMCA."

A take on Skeletor's comment[1] (I'm sure wired will agree):

An apple a day keep freedom away
An apple a day keeps a lawyer at bay

No Apple products in my household as result of stunts like this (and arbitrary lock-in). People fought hard for freedom of speech, just to watch others give up their (and others) rights for shiny beads.

You have the power to change this. Apple needs you and your money more than you need them. Instead of nodding your head, make it clear that you won't buy their products until things change.

Vote with your wallet.
