This has long prevented people from visualizing macOS on standard PC hardware. I guess it applies there, too?— Graham Christensen (@grhmc) December 29, 2020
The natural next step: Amazon offer iOS on the cloud, and you can remote login to your secured iOS devices on your cloud. I am surprised by the ruling, but it opens a whole new world of businesses out there (both monetizing iOS and monetizing all sorts of other software) https://t.co/GGrOX4WV4J— Miguel de Icaza (@migueldeicaza) December 29, 2020
Apple losing the Corellium case just highlights how tough it’s going to be to argue their case vs antitrust action, Epic Games, Cydia and whatever else pops up next year. There are many things Apple (and its pundits) assume to be true that just won’t survive scrutiny— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) December 29, 2020
And if the logical conclusion of your lawsuit is Windows being a terms of service change away from overnight bankrupting VMware to force everyone to use Azure, and turning security testing of compiled binaries into lawsuits, then sorry, your lawsuit is bad and you should feel bad— Pwn All The Things (@pwnallthethings) December 29, 2020
The weirdest part of this lawsuit is that Apple claimed users of the emulation should have been legally bound to report any bugs they find to Apple.— Fr. Robert R. Ballecer, SJ (@padresj) December 30, 2020
In other words, Apple wanted the users of another company's software to work for Apple... For free. 🤔https://t.co/wv6hMYP5Pa

Step 1: Build your product in part by using stolen iPhone prototypes that make it easier to reverse engineer iOS.
Step 2: Get sued by Apple for copyright infringement.
Step 3: Win a Forbes award.

Apple just increased the price they will have to pay for Corellium if they really want to put it out (assuming DMCA case doesn’t create trouble). Genius move! 😂😂😂😂😂😂— fG! (@osxreverser) December 29, 2020
Might as well have backronym-ed "AFL" to "automatic federal lawsuit" in that scenario. Was such a dangerously broad claim.— Pwn All The Things (@pwnallthethings) December 29, 2020
Now just need SCOTUS to push Oracle's similarly obnoxious "Making software that is API-compatible with ours is actually copyright infringement" assertion through a shredder and then life will be grand.— Pwn All The Things (@pwnallthethings) December 29, 2020
DMCA claim survives summary judgment stage. So that's still a thing. But the copyright claim trying to exclude binary emulation from fair use was, despite less press (DMCA has a bad rep), equally if not more alarming.— Pwn All The Things (@pwnallthethings) December 29, 2020
For those watching the Apple v. Corellium copyright case, the district court issued a summary judgment opinion today.— Mark Gray (@emtgray) December 29, 2020
The court found fair use applied to Apple's copyright claims, but the DMCA circumvention claim will go to trial.

This is a big deal for security research in particular, but also other parts of tech.— Pwn All The Things (@pwnallthethings) December 29, 2020
Apple's case was an insanely broad assertion that emulating iOS firmware on something that's not Apple's own hardware violates iOS copyright, rather than covered by "fair use".
Imagine if that argument had prevailed. That emulation of a binary, even for wildly different purposes, such as security testing that binary, is a litigable copyright infringement.— Pwn All The Things (@pwnallthethings) December 29, 2020
