Jailbreaking your phone, mashup videos still legal (for now)10/29/2012
All those who enjoy thwarting The Man’s control of your life by jailbreaking your phone or mashing up "Tik Tok" with "California Gurls" on YouTube to prove a point, REJOICE! The Copyright office has awarded a "renewal of critical exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act," meaning you can remix music videos and jailbreak phones to your heart's content without bothersome cease-and-desist notices for at least the next three years. However, your tablets and video game consoles are still not to be tampered with, something the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) will keep fighting for: "If you bought your gadget, you own it, and you should be able to install whatever software you please without facing potential legal threats."
