Apple lost the very first battle in attaining copyright for virtualization.


- Advertisment -
Corellium’s product was deemed as “fair use” by the judge.

The big tech giant Apple has lost the first battle, it has lost its lawsuit which it did against Corellium, which is a security firm that gives a virtual version of Apple’s iOS in order to test for security reasons.


Apple filed a lawsuit against the security firm Corellium for using its code, but the United States District Court in Southern Florida overruled and gave the judgement that the code being used by Corellium falls into the fair use category. The judge, Rodney Smith said that the extra features in Corellium’s made it fall into fair use category especially because of its feature of observing and modifying the kernel. Corellium made a few changes to iOS and made it their own thing, as well as it serving as a transformative tool, and also helping the public through its product, made it fall into the fair use category.


Despite losing the battle, the court has still yet to make the final decision in the full trial. Apple started the lawsuit back in August, 2019 saying that Corellium violated DMCA rules and regulations. Furthermore, Apple said that Corellium tampering with their copyrighted code does not fall under the fair use category, as they said it is “unlawful”. But many security firms are alerted because of this case because they utilize Corellium’s products to analyze iOS.


Corellium helps many security firms, and Apple thinks that Corellium is somehow stealing their code and making it their own. The fact of the matter is, the court has yet to give a final verdict in the entire case, the full trial is yet to happen, but according to what has transpired, and how many companies rely on Corellium in order to test iOS for security reasons, it seems the court will rule in favor of Corellium in later stages as well.
