But this kinda move actually makes things like Flashcarts, cart readers and other backup units, often targets of legal problems by mammoths of gaming like Nintendo, legal. Right?
It is not so clear. (Cf below.)
As for cracking, you just need to adopt a StingRay, Meynaf or Galahad kitten.
These creatures food consists mainly of protection routines so both you and them will have a blast.

You are actually right. ArsTechnica's article about the topic highlights that the exemptions cover very specific uses which do not overlap with individuals's personal use. http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2...-personal-use/

This said, this is still a step in the right direction. The needle is moving and we should celebrate that for now.
