CNET/iPhone Jailbreaking

“The Jailbreaking Exemption has its Limits”, CNET, July 29, 2010. Larry analyzes the Copyright Office’s decision to grant copyright exemptions to cellphone “jailbreaking” and unlocking in this much-reprinted article from CNET. While noting subtle shifts in copyright law, Larry points out important limits to the decision that were left out of much of the reporting on the story. Larry’s blog essay on the subject was also excerpted by the influential Groklaw website as a top news pick for the week. It was also reprinted by New Media Rights.
