Petition To Make Unlocking, Jailbreaking Exempt From DMCA

Jailbreakers and unlockers unite! Now is the time to get heard and do something against to make jailbreaking and unlocking legal. Yes, in case you didn’t know, jailbreaking your iPhone is technically illegal. If you’re like me, you’re probably thinking something alon these lines: “fuck that! I paid for this phone so I should be able to do whatever I want with it”. Truth is you legally can’t!

The Electronic Frontier Foundation created in order to collect signature from people like us to appeal to the Copyright Office:

Hundreds of thousands of cellphone owners have modified their phones to connect to the network or run the software of their choosing, and many more would like to. But the Digital Millennium Copyright Act poses a legal threat to phone users, even though the law was supposed to protect copyright owners and distributors of digital music and movies. This threat of litigation has driven consumers underground, stifling innovation and competition.

Now, you can support EFF’s request that the Copyright Office grant an exemption to the DMCA that will protect phone users.
