Hackers afraid, or on whose side the law?

American company UniquePhones has met to start selling software to unlock the iPhone, did not do so because of potential legal problems with the operator AT & T. The reason - call operator lawyers warned, as written by the company in his blog.

After saying they were phoning on behalf of AT&T, the law firm presented issues such as copyright infringement and illegal software dissemination. Uniquephones is taking legal advice to ascertain whether AT&T was sending a warning shot or directly threatening legal action.

Why AT & T so concerned? People perepragramirovali SIM-card's nobody screaming, and then suddenly decided to punish. Rather, the hackers did not get something, and they have decided to "call" to help lawyers AT & T-it's easier to get off the scene. But on the other hand, last year the Register copyright (Register of Copyrights) has recommended amendments to the Act on the protection of copyright in the digital millennium "(DMCA 1998), which unlock phones is legal. Phone owners were allowed to bring machine to full functionality, ability to connect to any operator, said in explaining the government.
