First Sopa and Pipa kicked in and created a public outrage all around the world followed by the takedown of the well-known web sharing client Megaupload and retaliation coups by Anonymous. Lots of trouble lies still ahead as it has yet to be decided what happens to ACTA (a far more aggressive anti-piracy law).
Now even more chocking news came up to the surface as Redmondpie released an article about some changes concerning jailbreaking & unlocking.
In 2010 the act of Jailbreaking was declared to be legal in the United States. This was a huge setback for Apple as they invested a high amount of money into anti-jailbreak policies and propaganda.
They claim that third-party tweaks might influence you iOS experience in any way possible. However we all know that lots of Apple's firmware releases contain tweaks that were once only available in Cydia.
We all awaited that day when jailbreaking became legal and hence we have to sign the new petition to keep it that way.
The petition has been made by the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) which defends the act of jailbreaking. Furthermore it is important to know that the iPad is not yet covered under the ruling of 2010 meaning it is not yet legal to jailbreak your iPad.
So sign the petition to avoid a setback for third-party developers and you as user. To join you simply have to go to the EFF's webpage and and comment to the Copyright Office with the links provide of the EFF page.
The Copyright Office needs to hear from people who depend on the ability to jailbreak to write, use, and/or tinker with independent software (from useful apps to essential security fixes) for smartphones, tablets, and game consoles. You can submit comments online at this link.
