Technological Protection Measures on the iPhone – Protecting Copyrights or a Business Model?

13 02 2009

When reading through the tech news today, I came across a submission made to the US Copyright Office by David Hayes of Fenwick & West LLP on behalf of Apple Inc. This submission deals with Apple’s views on the legality of circumventing technological protection measures (TPMs, a.k.a. Digital Rights Management DRM) on their iPhone devices. Everybody who is interested in the technological and legal background of the iPhone’s TPMs and their circumvention (called “jailbreaking”), will find this submission a very interesting thing to read. Of course, since it is not a neutral statement, it has to be taken with the necessary grain of salt.
