Unlocking Your Smartphone Will Soon be Illegal

For the next three years at least, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) will have new exemptions concerning what you can and cannot do with your hand held devices. The new rules go into effect on October 28th.

Clearly, some of these new rules (no jailbreaking tablets, no ripping DVDs so you can watch them on tablets, no unlocking phones without permission) are ridiculous from a user standpoint.
