    Default Hope to see the wikki team succeed before the english !

    I really hope the wikki team will succeed before the english,
    That's why we have to support them by any way we can...

    Anyway i don't see apple to let this company sell a such product .... They will be sued for copyright infringement in a few days ...

    Can't believe I'm wasting my keystrokes here... but please explain to me how this would be copyright infringement?

    if you read correctly it NOT illegal to unlock phones.
    there's no way saying that there's sign of violating any copyrights.
    so...no...no one will be sued here for anything.
    thank you...

    Last paragraph of the article from the register :

    McLaughlin concedes that Apple is likely to take legal action against Uniquephones based on changes its unlocking process makes to the firmware loaded on iPhones rather than the act of unlocking the phones, which is legal. "They'll probably come after us for copyright infringement," he said. ®

    Edit : I did not want to say people will be sued for that only wanted to report what the article was saying.
    Excuse my english which is not my mother language. It can probably bring contradiction to what I wanted to say

    "...I am not aware of anyone who has argued that conventional copyright law would prohibit unlocking a cellphone..."

    "To get the phone unlocking exemption, we had to prove that unlocking not only is not infringement, but doesn't promote infringement. The U.S. Copyright Office, by virtue of granting the exemption, has definitively decided that unlocking is not infringing activity.

    Copyright law does not prevent someone from using software, which is what unlocking allows. Using is not an exclusive right of the CR owner. All unlocking does is enable the user to insert a new SIM card in his phone and operate the phone on any given cellular network. For CDMA phones, the user reprograms his phone to instruct it to connect to a new cellular network. Neither of these activities implicates the
    exclusive rights of the copyright owner. Additionally, reprogramming your phone is non-infringing activity permitted under 17 U.S.C. 117."

    Having quoted all that... doesn't mean that someone won't TRY to sue someone, of course!

    Hmm it's quite funny how often it's assumed US total insane coyprigth laws apply worldwide, it's widly known that Apple cannot even enforce their EULA in 90% of the world why shoudl they try to sue people in "free" countries all over they have no chance in?
    Luckily a big part of the remainign world is free enough to allow you to take apart things you own and talk about. Like Jon named his blog "so sue me"... (if you can).
