In late October, an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) was passed by the Library of Congress. The exemption temporarily allows jailbreaking smartphones without violating copyrights, but was not extended to tablets.

In a nutshell, jailbreaking represents statutory, security, business and contractual risks.
