official response to the EFF wanting a DMCA exemption for jailbreaking as part of the US Copyright Board's 2009 DMCA Rulemaking.
There have been no threats of any kind of legal action against the DEV Team. And the argument Apple submitted is not on the most solid legal ground.

Apple is arguing that jailbreaking violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act because jailbreaking depends on versions of Apple's copyrighted bootloader and operating system software that have been modified with out consent. This, Apple argues, results in infringement of the copyrights in that software.
Once again, this is a response to the EFF asking the Copyright Office to declare jailbreaking legal--right now its sort of a gray area, not explicitly illegal but not explicitly legal either.

Interesting that Apple waited this long
I find it interesting that Apple waited this long to voice an official opinion on the subject.
Could it have something to do with official iPhone apps now being cracked and available without having to pay for them?
Something to think about...
