Steve Jobs on How he Started Apple with "Illegal" Devices. Lessons to be Learned re Bill C-11?
Here's an amazing interview with Steve Jobs about how he and Steve Wozniak ("Woz") made what he admits were "illegal" "Blue Boxes" for telephone hacking. These were their first products.
"If we hadn't of made blue boxes, there would have been no Apple."
Fast forward to the DMCA and Bill C-11. So, is there a "bright line" between "criminal" activity, "piracy", and "innovation"?
This is recounted on tonight's "60 Minutes" and is apparently in the new biography.
