    Incorrect. Apple's trying to make it illegal. They have not yet managed to do so.

    "Reverse engineering is a fair use when done for purposes of fostering interoperability with independently created software." Straight from the TUAW article you posted.

    Jailbreaking is NOT illegal. The DMCA has specific exemptions for reverse-engineering for the purpose of interoperability

    I make a point of violating the DMCA in various ways everyday.

    If it was illegal it wouldn't be talked about openly on the site, for fear of having the site get closed down.
