Jailbreak About to Die?

By  at Monday, January 17, 2011  

NBC reports that Apple has asked the federal government to help stop hackers from jailbreaking the iPhone, iPod and iPad.

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 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]
