It's that time in the three-year cycle of the US Digital Millennium
Copyright Act where interested parties can petition for exemptions to its
anti-circumvention provisions. The Software Freedom Law Center has put out
on its request for an exemption allowing owners of
personal computing devices to install any software they choose on those
devices. The Electronic Frontier Foundation, instead, is asking for an extended right to jailbreak
, once again, so that different software can be installed.
