Apple fumes over jailbreaking law change

Written by Nick Farell

We only do it because we love our users
Jobs' mob is suffering from a huge knee to its philosophic essentials after the Library of Congress's Copyright Office ruled that users can legally jailbreak their phones.

According to the Copyright Office, Jailbreaking is "innocuous at worst and beneficial at best." Apple issued a statement this morning saying that it did not think that jailbreaking was mostly harmless.

"Apple's goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience," Apple said in a statement provided to Cult of Mac. "The vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably."

Apparently jailbreaking, leaves the phone open to the malicious attacks and everytime a phone is jailbroken a cute kitten dies, or something like that.

Apple works to avoid with its closed product ecosystem and App Store vetting process, Jobs Mob said. In other words Steve knows what is best for you and what is best for his bottom line. Trust Steve, buy some more Apple gear if you have doubts. Here is a broken iPhone with a rubber band. Of course you will have to pay for it, but that is what makes the doubts go away.

The change making jailbreaking legal does not mean that Jobs Mob hast to change its policy.  Apple said that it was important to note that unauthorized modification of the iOS is a violation of the iPhone end-user license agreement. Because of this, Apple may deny service for an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that has installed any unauthorised software."
