iPhone jailbreak

Earlier today, the news broke that the Library of Congress had declared jailbreaking/rooting your mobile phone legal.  Afterward, everyone was wondering how Apple would react to the news.  Wait no longer, dear reader, as Cult of Mac has spoken with Apple PR about the issue.  Apple's response?

“Apple’s goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience. As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably.”

Not surprising, but it's still good to hear straight from Apple on the situation.  When asked if they would sue companies that publicly distribute jailbreak tools, Apple PR would only say that they haven't sued anyone in the past.  So if you were planning on opening up your own jailbreak business, I'd hold off on those plans for the time being.
