Jail breaking is not a crime petition

You bought it. You own it. Tell the Copyright Office: let me install whatever software I want on my phone, tablet, or video game system.

bunnie Huang, author of Hacking the Xbox, is standing with the Electronic Frontier Foundation to defend users’ right to jailbreak. Will you sign on to bunnie’s letter to show the Copyright Office that users everywhere are demanding the right to jailbreak?

Visit jailbreakingisnotacrime for more info and to sign the petition. There are only 10 days left in this petition drive.

    I thought hardware could only be patented. They don’t know the difference between software and hardware.

    That the old farts running and deciding these laws. Also sometimes hardware needs to be modified. If its somthing you bought, imho as long as you are not using specifically to steal IP then you should be able to dork with something you bought all you want. Otherwise company’s should lease electronics or something… lol

    In the US, thanks to Sony, you don’t pay for the device. You pay for the PRIVILEGE of using it. While we had the right to do so before, that right has been revoked by a precedent. Sorry, all.
