Submission + - Apple Lifts Ban on the Word "Jailbreak" (threatpost.com)

Gunkerty Jeb writes: After banning the word "jailbreak" from its app store and music library, Apple today reversed course and again permits the term — slang for hacking into a device to download unauthorized content — to appear on iTunes and its App Store.

On Thursday bloggers noticed Apple had censored the word, using the Thin Lizzy album "Jailbreak" as an example. For awhile, the title was listed as "J******k" in Apple's music library, at least its U.S. version. In other instances, digital content continued to bear the full name Jailbreak.
