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.

EFF would stop making that broad stroke if Linux were the prevailing market leader.


Why do you keep bringing Linux into this discussion? I've not seen one mention of Linux outside of your comments. I do have to hand it to you though, there's no faster way to send a discussion spiraling off topic around here than to pull Linux into it somehow.

Yer, but it's always amusing to watch the resulting road accident.
