And again with the phone news, but this is kind of big: The Library of Congress ruled today that iPhone users should be allowed to "jailbreak" their phone and download unauthorized applications, revising an earlier rule from 1998 that permitted companies to impose such restrictions. The new rules are part of a group announced today -- something that Library of Congress' Copyright Office does every three years or so.

The new rules also include one that states that users should be able break access controls on their phones in order to switch wireless carriers -- something AT&T should probably be worried about and will likely try to fight.

Also among the rules are new exemptions for DVD ripping for educational purposes, and something about breaking technical protections on video games to correct security flaws.
