Well as I stated in another thread I contacted the FSF to see if by locking down the Droid X if Motorola could possibly be violating the GPL v2 since there was some GPL related scripts tied to Android. The response I received today was that this falls under "tivoization" and is perfectly legal under the GPL v2 even though it is a loophole. Further research into the issue has shed some new light on the issue. There was a case handled by the EFF in 2009 regarding a Texas Instruments TI-83 calculator and the circumstances are VERY similar to the ones we are facing with the Droid X and future devices. A bried synopsis of can be found here: EFF: TI calculator hackers didn't violate DMCA | Deep Tech - CNET News I have contacted Jennifer Granick of the EFF to see if this particular section of the DMCA also applies to this situation. I encourage anyone interested in seeing a resolution to please contact Jennifer Granick at firstname.lastname@example.org and write her a letter requesting this to be looked into.
