When one of the bright minds in this forum makes a reg edit that allows you to tether your device and cabs it up for distribution there is no written agreement attached to that software so we are within our rights to distribute it. Now if you choose to use it you are breaking your agreement with your carrier but that has nothing to do with PPCGeeks and this website. If there is something wrong with anything posted on this web site we are notified and forced to remove it so why hasn't PPCGeeks been notified by Sprint to remove the tethering cabs?

IMHO you started this thread because you were "fresh off of a suspension" and now you are seeking some sort of twisted vindication for your situation. Your snappy thread that started such a great debate wont change the way thing are because PPCGeeks has every right to host the tethering cab files, bottom line it is the user that is in violation of the rules by using it.
um your wrong... heres sprints policy on copyrighten materials..
You may not otherwise use, reproduce, download, store, post, broadcast, transmit, modify, sell or make available to the public content without the prior written approval of Sprint.

heres some things from MS' site: 1.
Just because a work does not include a copyright notice (e.g., © 2006 Microsoft Corporation) does not mean the work is in the public domain. Copyright notices are generally not required for works to be protected by copyright.
2.
Just because a work is easily available on the internet or elsewhere does not mean you may use the work freely
-------------------------------------
Copyright law is different from the law of personal property. If you buy a physical object, such as a movie on DVD, or why not i our case a cell phone, you own the physical object. You do not, however, obtain ownership of the “copyrights” (the rights to make copies, distribute, make derivatives and publicly perform or display) in the content of the movie. The fact that you have obtained physical possession of a DVD does not automatically grant you the right to copy or share it.

What is copyright?

Copyright law protects original works, such as websites, books, music, paintings, photos and video. um wheres the word "software" everyones hiding behind?? a bOOK, painting, photos, videos is hardly software...A work is “original” if it contains some elements you created and did not borrow from others. Typically, when you create an original work, you own the copyright.
-----------------------------------------------------------
were not creating an original work, because we are borrowing the original works from a copyrighten program(ICS), that u had to borrow from MS?SPRINT?HTC(whoever u feel like hiding behind)and we dont own the copyright too..

so dont you see, applying a reg edit or cab file to someone elses original work(MS' ICS in this case), makes it a issue of copyright infringement


so guess what, Thats MS and Sprint saying you cant manipulate anything that they own the copyright too, otherwise your violating Copyright Law..

Re: Warez Vs. Tethering

I vote for reinstating the ban...and not just for there being entirely too much highlighting in that last post.

This off topic rant ends this debate.
