Apple has responded to yesterday's press release from the Library of Congress, which listed jailbreaking and unlocking mobile devices (such as iPhones) as lawful. 

A representative for the company spoke with website Cult of Mac about using jailbreaks and unauthorized software on their devices:

“Apple’s goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience. As we’ve said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably.”

In short, Apple's position has not changed. They claim that jailbreaking your device can hurt the user experience and will void your warranty. We didn't expect much more than that, but the fact that JB is now clearly legal is a huge deal to the smartphone community.
