Jailbreaking or Rooting Can Become Illegal for Smartphones and Tablets

In 2010, the US Copyright Office said jailbreaking smartphones doesn’t violate Section 1201 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Well that was not a permanent ruling and it expires this year. The EFF is looking for help in convincing the Copyright Office to renew the provision to keep jailbreaking or rooting from breaking the DMCA. For further information follow the link to EFF.org or you can follow the link directly to the Copyright Office and show support for extension.
