Unshackling Cellphones: Freeing Digital Consumers from Government Regulation

Everyone should have the right to unlock their legally owned phones in the Digital–Age yet  government policy once again is unnecessarily limiting consumer choice. In 1998, Congress passed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which outlawed the sale or creation of software for circumventing anti-piracy locks on digital devices, even if they comply with copyright law.

Tell Your Representatives to Allow Cell Phone Unlocking!

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and urge him or her to co-sponsor H.R. 1892, the Unlocking Technology Act of 2013. Introduced by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and a bipartisan group of lawmakers that includes Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), this bill would simply allow consumers to bypass digital manufacturer locks on devices that they already legally own.
