Taking its legal fight with iOS virtualization vendor Corellium to a new level, Apple is suing the company for allegedly trafficking under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in the US.

The new lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida comes after the iPhone maker initially sued Corellium for copyright infringement in August, alleging that the company’s virtualisation of iOS was violating Apple’s ownership of the code, The Verge reported on Friday.


Expanding the case, Apple’s revised complaint alleges that “Corellium’s business is based entirely on commercialising the illegal replication of the copyrighted operating system and applications that run on Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and other Apple devices”.

“Corellium simply copies everything: the code, the graphical user interface, the icons – all of it, in exacting detail…providing its users with the tools to do the same,” it added.

According to the complaint by Apple, the product Corellium offers is a “virtual” version of Apple mobile hardware products, accessible to anyone with a web browser.

“Specifically, Corellium serves up what it touts as a perfect digital facsimile of a broad range of Apple’s market-leading devices recreating with fastidious attention to detail not just the way the operating system and applications appear visually to bona fide purchasers, but also the underlying computer code.”

In a statement after the filing, Corellium said it is “deeply disappointed by Apple’s persistent demonization of jailbreaking.”

Jailbreaking an iPhone lets people customize their iOS devices and run unsupported apps.

“Apple is using this case as a trial balloon in a new angle to crack down on jailbreaking,” said Corellium CEO Amanda Gorton. (IANS)

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
