The Most Ridiculous Law of 2013 (So Far)
The Most Ridiculous Law of 2013 (So Far): It Is Now a Crime to Unlock Your Smartphone...

This is now the law of the land:

ADVISORY

BY DECREE OF THE LIBRARIAN OF CONGRESS

IT SHALL HENCEFORCE BE ORDERED THAT AMERICANS SHALL NOT UNLOCK THEIR OWN SMARTPHONES.

PENALTY: In some situations, first time offenders may be fined up to $500,000, imprisoned for five years, or both. For repeat offenders, the maximum penalty increases to a fine of $1,000,000, imprisonment for up to ten years, or both.*

That's right, starting this weekend it is illegal to unlock new phones to make them available on other carriers.

I have deep sympathy for any individual who happens to get jail time for this offense. I am sure that other offenders would not take kindly to smartphone un-lockers.

But seriously: It's embarrassing and unacceptable that we are at the mercy of prosecutorial and judicial discretion** to avoid the implementation of draconian laws that could implicate average Americans in a crime subject to up to a $500,000 fine and up to five years in prison.

When you jump to another provider, you need to unlock your phone first usually. More so in the last couple of years.
This requires that you erase most or all of the factory ROM usually.
This in turn means that anything the government made the phone manufacturer build into the software becomes null. (Are you serious? You don't think they do that??)

This bill says only one thing: Don't wipe your phone cos it means we can't spy on you/track you/fuck with you/steal from you/pin any dogshit accusation on you that we like.

It could also mean that you could fuck with the government using your phone.. if you were so inclined. They don't like that. They like the position of top, not bottom, even though they all like it in the ass.

Thank people like this gay, Communist, pedophile, rapist, Zionist lackey:-
