No, you do own the device and can modify it as you will, and your copy of the firmware that runs on it. You can't redistribute the firmware, but that's a different matter
Well, in the Geohotz lawsuit, sony is argueing it's all illegal.
Though logically the above doesn't make sense.
I mean, you can jailbreak your Iphone, but your son can't jailbreak it for you.
How does that make sense in the least?
Isn't that just creating one set of rights for the technologically able and another set of rights for those who aren't?
Isn't that... and I hate to use the comparsion but it's the only legal precedent i can currently think of. Isn't it basically a modern "Jim Crow" law?
You can only have a hacked Iphone, if you prove your technologically savy enough to make one?
