    I really don't see this stopping anything...

    Kinda like Apple's policy against developers distributing the new beta. Veeeeeery effective.

    Pretty sure those statements have been there since the first developer agreement. Or at least something along largely the same lines.

    Actually, this might be pretty darn effective. If they see an app on Cydia, they call the developers up.

    I could see people like those at Qik going one way or the other, and most likely to the Apple App store side. With the SDK and OS 3.0 providing a lot more, and the ability to provide free apps, and other business models, why go jailbreak way?

    If so they should file charges against their own patent lawyers.
