Jailbreaking now illegal for Tablets and E-Book Readers

Quote:
What about tablets? No dice. The Librarian "found significant merit to the opposition’s concerns that this aspect of the proposed class was broad and ill-defined ... For example, an e-book reading device might be considered a 'tablet,' as might a handheld video game device or a laptop computer."

Quote:
Why the change? The Librarian cited two key factors. One is a 2010 ruling that held that when you purchase software, you don't actually own it. Rather, you merely license it according to the terms of the End User License Agreement. The Librarian argued that this undermined the claim that unlocking your own phone was fair use.
For devices bought after January 2013: This means one can no more jailbreak their Kindle or iPad legally.
