Phone Unlocking Made LegalSubmitted by wellington on Tue, 05/28/2013 - 09:25
"A consumer who unlocks his phone in order to use a different service provider after his contract has expired, or who has to unlock his phone when using it abroad, will be able to do so without committing a felony punishable by five years in jail and a $500,000 fine."
a free society shouldn’t have to petition its government every three years to allow access to technologies that are ordinary and commonplace. A free society should not ban technologies unless there is a truly overwhelming and compelling governmental interest. Congress must act to legalize cellphone unlocking substantively, but then it must legalize other technologies that have been banned without explanation.
