This episode need a huge disclaimer: we got almost all of the details of this wrong, the lawsuit is based on CFAA, not on copyright. We apologize for this enormous oversight.
Josh and Kurt talk about Apple suing NSO using a copyright claim as their vehicle. Copyright is often used as a reason to bring lawsuits, even when it doesn’t always make sense. Copyright has been used by open source to expand rights, and many companies to restrict rights. It’s a very odd law sometimes. At the end of the day it seems the only real path forward for a problem like NSO is up to governments to protect their citizens.
