Copy-and-paste comes to the iPhone...and it's open source

There's a new way to copy-and-paste on the iPhone, and it's open source so Apple can't kill it.

I was very excited to see on OStatic that OpenClip, an open-source copy-and-paste application for the iPhone, is out.

In case you needed proof in a divine being....

Could Apple shut it down, as it has with other applications that it doesn't like? Well, as OStatic points out, OpenClip "uses shared space, outside the common resource space that Apple's SDK protects, to facilitate copy and paste." So maybe it's on firm legal territory.

I wouldn't want to put myself up against Apple's legal team, however, which is why making the application open source makes a lot of sense. The code is loose: how is Apple supposed to put it back in its cage?
