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.

That's a good point.

Sure, the wikipedia link says the LOC serves "as the base for the United States Copyright Office." But this is essentially a legal decision.

I can't remember hearing of the Library of Congress handing down a legal decision before. It at least stands out as not being ordinary.
