Obama Administration being petitioned to make unlocking cell phones legal
The Obama administration is being petitioned to make unlocking cell phones legal, following a decree by the Librarian of Congress which took effect on January 26. Under the new law an offender may pay up to � 1,000,000 or serve 10 years in jail.
They ask that the White House ask the Librarian of Congress to rescind this decision, and failing that, champion a bill that makes unlocking permanently legal.
