iPhone App Cracker Released--Then Pirated

Gizmodo reports that Crackulous, an iPhone application that makes it easier to pirate iPhone apps for use on jailbroken iPhones, was released. As its name might suggest, Crackulous strips the copy protection scheme put in place on iPhone applications purchased from Apple's iTunes Store, allowing anyone to share the cracked app with friends or on BitTorrent, peer-to-peer networks, or file-sharing Web sites (sharing copyrighted material without the copyright-holder's permission is, of course, illegal in the United States).
