Thanks Lynn. That was a good read. I was intending to jailbreak my 3G iPhone in order to tether it, but there is a little blurb there which says, 

"Computer programs, in the form of firmware or software, that enable used wireless telephone handsets to connect to a wireless telecommunications network, when circumvention is initiated by the owner of the copy of the computer program solely in order to connect to a wireless telecommunications network and access to the network is authorized by the operator of the network." 

I read that to mean that AT&T can still say that tethering is forbidden and I am still legally obligated to comply. <sigh>
