[MTFans] Apple Fruitlessly Attempting To Stop Jailbreakers - Page 2

post #11 of 49
These companies have way to much time on their hands. They are fooling around with this stuff, instead of getting on with bringing out some technology. With what Apple has been paying lawyers to issue frivolous lawsuits - they could have entirely developed a full range of practical computers, like a netbook, a desktop, and a mini-tower - or at least they could upgrade their video offerings to something that is not antique and is in current production...

It's more of an ego thing because their babies have been broken down by small groups of people compared to these companies arsenal of developers, coders, programmers, etc etc. I don't know how Apple will pull this off since we can jailbreak our devices and it's not like we can circumvent the App Store and get free apps with the jailbreak.

The 360 has been modded/hacked for a while now and it still competes on par to the PS3 or even better (I'm not that informed on it). Explain how that happens and the PS3 has been locked down since it's debut. Piracy is just an easy excuse to use to get what they want.

Wait didn't a judge rule that Apple really could not stop a consumer from modifying the device once they purchased it?

Good thing I'm in Canada, despite the fact they already have no case, they have even less of a case here.

Apple cannot stop them legally from jailbreaking their device. Suing them for modifying their software or distributing pirated apps is a different story. This is the angle that Sony appears to be coming in from as well.

Yes he has been sued. They just haven't been to court yet.

Like impeachment with Presidents, suing is just the act of one side saying the other did something wrong, it has nothing to do with the verdict. They have yet to appear in court to deliberate and convict or drop charges.

I think that all devices should be jailbroken. In fact, they should not even need to be jailbreaking - people should just be allowed to use the machine as they need to, without fake, anti-competitive restrictions. I should have the choice to select and deselect every single bootup function, if I wish - and such devices should be devoid of viruses, urrr, big brother spying programs that manufacturers assure us are there for "quality experiences".

I hate to admit this but piracy does have some effect on software sales. It is definitely not a one to one, but a small but sizeable percentage of pirates would have bought the product. This can lead to lost sales of 10-30%, depending on the title, price, and how easy it is to pirate, if MP is a large component of the game, etc.

I think we do need to find an effective way to protect copyrights and ensure creators and publishers can profit from their work. At the same time draconian DRM does not seem the best way to do this.

I think a combination of limited DRM, online content, and changes in distribution models can help these entertainment companies minimize the effects of piracy in the Internet age. Do not forget, we have always had piracy since software was first being made. The industry has managed to profit in spite of it and I think they will continue to do so with smart planning and maintaining a good relationship with its customers.
