EFF proposing DMCA exemption for iPhone jailbreaking

A number of iPhone owners out there have chosen to jailbreak their devices, and although Apple hasn't done much to stop the practice, it's unclear what the legal situation related to jailbreaking looks like. In an effort to protect jailbreakers from DMCA claims, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has asked the Copyright Office for a DMCA exemption for jailbreaking, and the organization would like developers (and presumably iPhone users as well) to chime in on the proposed exemption.
