According to the complaint of Apple, the Corellium offers a “virtual” version of Apple mobile hardware products.
Apple now made this fight as a legal fight with iOS virtualization vendor Corellium. Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Apple has sued the company for allegedly trafficking in the US.
The Verge reported on Friday that the new lawsuit was filed in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida. It also added that initially, the iPhone maker sued Corellium for copyright infringement in August, alleging that the company’s virtualization of iOS was violating Apple’s ownership of the code.
Apple also revised the complaint that states “Corellium’s business is based entirely on commercializing the illegal replication of the copyrighted operating system and applications that run on Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and other Apple devices”.
It also added that 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.
According to the complaint by Apple, the product Corellium offers is a “virtual” version of Apple mobile hardware products which is easily accessible to anyone with a web browser.
Corellium serves up to promote as a perfect digital facsimile of a broad range of Apple’s which is one of the market-leading devices to recreate fussy attention to detail, not just as the way operating system and applications appear visually to bona fide purchasers, but also the underlying computer code.
Corellium gave a statement that it is “deeply disappointed by Apple’s persistent demonization of jailbreaking.”
Now iPhone users can customize their iOS devices and run unsupported apps.
Corellium CEO Amanda Gorton said that Apple is using this case as a trial balloon in a new angle to crack down on jailbreaking.
