Well, I am free to update my HTC Hero on Sprint to whatever I want. Granted I do void the warranty but a call to SquareTrade Warranty fixes that and its cheaper than Sprints insurance and easier to deal with than Sprint. I have Cyanogen6 on mine and she purrs like a kitten. I do see the point though, and it is bull. Less than 2 years old and now Sprint isn't updating the os on the Hero anymore, and Samsung pulling that bs, It's a sad sad world.

Let me get all this straight. I can give away my physical cd/dvd, but if I give away my digital copy it is illegal? What if I give away my cd/dvd some uses it or even copies it for there own use then gives it back to me, is that illegal? Lobby you say, imho the source of all that is evil in this government. Ok, Ill bite, let's lobby, oh wait, the RIAA spends millions of dollars paying off and bribing political officials and judges, I mean lobbying. Well since I dont have enough money to lobby effectively. And may I add if I recall Obama appointed two yes count them two of the RIAA's lobbyists to some legal positions. Well then I propose this, we need to start a site where we all give each other our physical copies of our cd/dvd's, we will call them donations. I am going to donate my Tinkerbell Blu Ray to you. Ironically you can clap your hands and Tinkerbell will drop that Blu Ray in your lap. Then we can sit back and watch the RIAA try to fight donating.
