    IF YOU READ THIS POST, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS POSTED BELOW.

    ...

    TERMS AND CONDITIONS: YOU MUST PAY ME $100, CHECKS ONLY PLEASE.


    And yet I doubt I'll be making any money off this deal.

    Apple's contract can say whatever the hell it wants, but it does not override the law. As determined by a supreme court decision as well as a multitude of fair use clauses in copyright law, reverse engineering with the intent to facilitate software interoperability is not illegal.

    Dear Apple,

    I hate you.

    Jailbreaking an iPhone constitutes copyright infringement and a DMCA violation, says Apple in comments filed with the Copyright Office as part of the 2009 DMCA triennial rulemaking. This marks the first formal public statement by Apple about its legal stance on iPhone jailbreaking.

    Not only did they rip me off for a phone for 600$, now they are saying that I cant do what I want with it to get the full satisfaction my 600$ really is worth? I got jiped so I jailbroke it to make this phone feel like it was worth 600$, without it being jailbroken, I wouldnt pay over 100$, screw you apple.

    Hell I might just break it without jailing it!

    Soon Apple will say it's illegal to take the iphone to the loo when taking a dump. I just hope people are smart enough to see through their bullshit.

    My humble guess here is that Apple is resorting to the DMCA to recover from several problems in their iPhone business/engineering model.

    Apple was not worried because till now, only their "partners" like AT&T (and other carriers) could say they were being hurt.

    Now Apple is getting hurt too because of their poor app protection design, that was easily circumvented allowing for pirated apps. Not only their are not getting their share, but developers are constantly complaining that Apple keeps on failing to prevent app piracy.

    But they can't do much here, at least without a major overhaul of their App development and deployment model. They created a huge and complex design, based on code signatures, too many certificates, etc., and failed miserably by leaving a few single points of failure (or attack) in their design.

    But their main design error was to bluntly assume that code inside the phone could not be patched. And this is all the reason that now they are going after the "jailbreakers". Since there is no simple (or cheap) way to fix it, they now want to declare it "illegal".

    Like the record and movie industry, instead of reviewing their business models and adapt to the technology, they want to use the law to curtail tech advances and protect their long in place business models.

    Apple should rather cooperate with the dev-team instead of trying to stop the jailbreak. If you don't steal stuff or don't try to make profit from jailbreaking, then I wouldn't see why you couldn't do it. It's like ppl couldn't pimp their cars!

    Why apple always think about money rather than customer satisfaction? Their product is always costly. I spent 600$ for grabbing iphone & now punishment is to give more & more to apple. Jailbreaking is not illegal from my view.
