He was involved in making and selling counterfeit copies of software. Considering that law is intended to protect data communications, not software products or hardware measures to prevent copying of those products, it is ridiculous to be using it. What sentence did he receive?
Does it use a SIM? Then you'd need to RICA that. The phone/device you put it into isn't relevant.
Yep it uses a sim (Qpeel), theres a guy on gumtree selling them so I offered them to him at what I paid for them.
US law has a fair use clause in DMCA act to allow for jailbreak. Our copyright law does not have this clause as its never been updated to cater for today's use of the law. (Why we can download without a worry)
Not tested in court yet, but I can tell you selling jailbroken devices is, as people who sold jailbroken PS3's where sentenced.
Personally I say go jailbreak away, not like they have enough space or time to go after all the iOS/Android owners that broke no 4 above on their own devices.
Thanks for the heads up, I have decided rather be super safe than sorry
