Apple Begins Censoring JailBreak Term

Apple have obviously not been happy with the jail breaking community and today surprises were in store for users of its U.S. appstore and iTunes store.

On searching through Apple’s iTunes music store for the word jailbreak and you are greeted with song titles with the name jailbreak censored as seen below.

So far this is only happening in the states and it is not known whether this will come to the UK or other international stores.

I think artists will be most unhappy to see their song titles censored in such a manner as will developers who want to ‘coin-in’ on the term jailbreak. Is this only the beginning or will we see the censorship deepen?

Apple has not commented on their reasons for censoring what is after all legitimate titles in iTunes and the AppStore.
