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.

Since Linux and the software that surrounds it is open source and de facto open anyway then creating a closed platform with it like Apple is going would be that much more difficult. I fail to see how you can compare apples to kiwi fruits, so to speak, in the EFF's reasoning.

I recommend a cold shower otherwise your head is going to explode.
