“Mobile Unlocking DMCA Exemption” Petition Passes 100k

cellphone_usersAll eyes are on the White House now as a WeThePeople petition on requesting the Library of Congress reverse the previous decision on rendering cell phone unlocking illegal has surpassed the 100,000 signature threshold for a response. While this does compel an official response from President Obama, it should be noted that he cannot force the Library of Congress to overturn their decision.

Official photographic portrait of US President...

However, gaining a positive response from the President would shine some political pressure to act and greatly raise awareness on the matter. If you have not signed it yet, head over to and add your weight to the pressure!
