Well hello there, US DMCA. Welcome to 2010.

Either the 21st century’s slowing down, or copyright law’s finally starting to speed up south of the border. Jailbreaking your iPhone or equivalent may break your warranty with the manufacturer, but as of now, it won’t break the law. Almost makes me want to move to the US and get an iPhone. Apparently, this also works for unlocking your smartphone in order to move it to another carrier. Which is still technically against copyright law up here. You taking notes, Tony Clement? You’d better be.
