Now legal in the U.S.: Jailbreaking your iPhone, ripping a DVD for educational purposes

Aloha all,
In one presentation I went to at Bb World, there was mention of new copyright laws that may go in to effect soon that had implications for online learning and accessibility to otherwise copyright protected content. They didn't go into detail, but said to be on the look out for it. I just saw this come through iNACOL and thought the rest of you would be interested. The US Copyright Office reviews copyright laws every three years and just handed down 6 classes, regarding use of technology, that will be exempt from prosecution. Have to admit I don't know much about "jailbreaking" or "dongles," but I can definitely see how this can set a precedent for future educational accessibility through the use of technology. Here's the link to the article: "Now Legal in the U.S. . . ."
