    Could jailbreaking your iPhone land you in jail?

    Well probably not jail – but if Apple has its way, in some sort of legal trouble. I saw this over at Wired’s Threat Level blog. Apparently Apple is asserting that hacking the phone to run non-approved applications violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

    Jailbreaking is a process that opens up the iPhone’s or iPod Touch’s OS to installing applications not purchased or downloaded from Apple’s official application store.
