Whitehouse Petition to Repeal DMCA

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year ago

An anonymous reader writes "Given the recent criminalization under the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) for unlocking your cell phone for use on another network, a petition has been created at whitehouse.gov to repeal the DMCA. If you're a United States citizen, and believe the DMCA is too broad and harsh (e.g. makes it illegal to circumvent protection for fair use, even if no copyright law is violated), then signing the petition is one way to make your voice heard.

I also encourage you to write to your Congressional representatives, or contact them through opencongress.org."
