2 White House: unlocking of cellphones should be legal More than 100,000 people signed a petition protesting the ban on phone swapping imposed by the Library of Congress, which took effect in January of this year.

3 Why? Many argue that cellphones should be locked, meaning prevented from changing networks, because of the massive subsidies that carriers provide, quickly putting the phones in more peoples control.

4 What? The ban argued that preventing unlocking subtracts consumer choice and resale value of phones, which can cost hundreds of dollars without subsidies from major carriers.

5 Who? The Library of Congress became part of this debate last year during a rulemaking session conducted by the Register of Copyrights. Unidentified participants in the rulemaking process raised the issue during the session conducted.

6 So… The Library of Congress eventually decided that phones of any kind should no longer be taken from the relevant section of copyright law, bringing the January ban on unlocking.
