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.

Possibly that's because you built a communications system. Here we are building a mashup of entertainment systems that must be protected because of all that super-geeky proprietary stuff (yawn). When the fog clears way, the capitalists have their money securely stashed away, and everyone realizes that the system was never designed to handle what's being thrown at it the capitalist will swear they can't afford the upgrade and the government will rebuild the thing at taxpayer expense.
