Smartphone Ban

So a federal law is about to go into effect and it has far reaching effects. As a part of the DMCA, it will be illegal to unlock your smartphone without your carrier’s consent. If you do so, you, as a first-time offender, could face a $500,000 fine and/or up to 5 years in jail…for unlocking the smartphone you already own. This is, quite possibly, the stupidest law of which I have heard.

Please sign the White House petition to put a stop to the stupidity and greed of corporate America. I did. My signature number is #36,923. Good luck and thank you!
