Sprint Warns Against Palm Pre Tethering Hacking

Sprint had "politely" warned the guys behind Pre Dev Wiki to desist from all discussions regarding tethering for the Palm Pre during the Sprint exclusivity period, or Palm will be forced to take legal actions against the people running the wiki and IRC. The wiki guys have agreed upon this and is not allowing any further discussions about tethering. This all feels like a weird dream... Though I'm sure tethering hacking will still go on, else where.

Pre Dev Wiki Tethering page:

"We have been politely cautioned by Palm that any discussion of tethering during the Sprint exclusivity period (and perhaps beyond—we don't know yet) will probably cause Sprint to complain to Palm, and if that happened then Palm would be forced to react against the people running the IRC channel and this wiki.

We want to retain a good relationship with Palm, hence we are not allowing discussion of tethering on the IRC channel, or in this wiki.

Note that Sprint does not have a plan available for use with the Pre which allows tethering under the Terms Of Service.

Once there is a version of the Pre available for a carrier that does allow tethering, or an unlocked GSM version, then we may be able to change this policy."
