Mozilla Files To Legalise iPhone Jailbreaking
Firefox makers, Mozilla, have filed papers to the US Copyright Office in a move that sees them going head to head with Apple over the legally murkey process ofÂ iPhoneÂ unlocking.
Mozilla is backing a proposal by the Electronic Frontier Foundation to make an exemption to the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act that would allow a legal iPhone unlock.
They are putting forwardÂ that it would promote â€œopen accessâ€ to the internet – andÂ allow folk to download Firefox Mobile as a side-effect 😉
SkypeÂ are also behind this as they’d love the chance to getÂ theirÂ VoIP over 3G as well as Wi-Fi.
We all know that Apple isn’tÂ exactly free with their platform and are obviously loving the revenue being brought in from their App Store.
I think with namesÂ like MozillaÂ and Skype hasseling the US government for aÂ legal iPhone unlock it could get messy with lots of scratching and hair-pulling.
Kinda like a Friday-night in Wombwell.
I’ll keep you people up-to-date 🙂
