Citing iPhone Ruling, Xbox Defendant Says Mod Chips Are Fair Use

not that im against piracy and all
but jailbreaking iphone unlocks new features that apple should have implimented in the iphone

but modding an xbox 360 is 98% for piracy

I don't see them being the same, a phone being the same as a game system? Don't think so.

How those modders get fine alot of money.
