Apple Asking Federal Government Crack Down on Jailbreaking !

NBC reports that Apple has asked the federal government to help crack down on hackers and stop them from jailbreaking iPhones.

Apple told the U.S. Copyright Office

Current jailbreak technologies now in widespread use utilize unauthorized modifications to the copyrighted bootloader and operating system, resulting in the infringement of the copyrights in those programs

This request came just after Sony’s filed lawsuit against PlayStation and iPhone hacker Geohot. This action from Apple came though the Library of Congress having deemed that jailbreaking your iPhone in order to install applications not approved by Apple is totally legal. [NBC, via iClarified]
