If Apple Inc cannot bring the jailbreakers to justice what hope of Canon Inc? They have better luck stiffing the grey market imports.
4K video should not cost that much!
Really? Let's see you learn programming and crack the firmware yourself.
they would “bring the might of its legal team” to anyone that attempts to modify at the software level,
leave your customers alone - we bought your over priced camera - let us do what we want with it.
besides - it did not cost you anything for ML to do their work.
~ we can sue you too you know - you have no business what we do with our cameras.
Really, sue Canon? Is that the advice you gave to George Hotz vs. Sony?
Honestly, I don't expect the ML team to break this. It would take too much work to benefit a small few. Plus they know the implications of possibly pissing off Canon. It's not impossible for Canon to lock out ML on ALL cameras, would you honestly want that to happen?
Seriously, some people just have no respect for IP.
Who is to say that the ML team will be the ones that break anything?
What if someone worked out a way to "flash" the 1DC firmware directly onto a 1DX via a 3rd party software plugin of some form.
That way they are not tampering with the firmware at all, they are just loading a legit copy of the firmware onto a similar body. (basically the firmware itself isn't touched so no ability to sue, only the method for loading the firmware onto the camera).
BTW George Hotz modified the firmware of the PS3, so he DID break their EULA, If on the other hand the PS3 was just a PS2 with say new funky controllers and all he did was work out a method of flashing the PS3 firmware onto a PS2 without modifying it at all, so you could play all the PS3 games with the PS2 controllers, that would be a different argument.
