[Digitaltrends] Unlocking your smartphone will soon be illegal - Page 7  

post #61 of 192
Hmm this could be fatal sites for unlocking phones they will be taken down and unlocking on eBay will be taken out as well ..frown.gif at the moment it is 4 dollars to unlock a iPhone 5 from AT&T ... Not to mention the cellphone stores that provide unlocks to people I wonder how they would control it ..will they take the sites down or go to the stores trying to unlock a phone And if they do unlock it will they ticket them? Or force close the store ...
In ny this happens a lot with stolen phones cops themselves bring in phones that are stolen and make a store buy it just to close it down hmmmm

Most people are on YouTube. It's the new TV, but much better because content is provided from people.
BTW, I haven't sat down and watched TV in at least 5 years. I also haven't went to theaters in ages. Not kidding at all.
Nobody cares what DMCA states about jailbraking gadgets. I buy an item and I do whatever I want to it. Deal with it!
Old farts with limited education in today's social changes sitting at the DMCA offices need to retire faster so that bright-minded people can replace 'em.

unless you are capable of JBing from scratch then you are SOL. tools that facilitate JBing will be illegal and it will be illegal to to even instruct how to. that would mean that communities that assist in JBing will be shut and i can see some corporation taking this to the next level by claiming that linux and other OS facilitate in illegal activity and be shut down

I'm going to do it anyway.

They can put me in jail or whatever.

Laws that don't need to exist have no reason to be followed.

no one really stopping you form doing it, question is do you know how on your own without the net/books or anyone else as a resource

Ha! America. In lazy down under, I don't think anyone (including law enforcement/governments) gives a damn about jailbreaking, unlocking or any of that. Anyway, does this even matter? Who cares about that sort of stuff being illegal. They will still do it anyway.

American law enforcement can't take down any website they want, unless it is registered/hosted in America (I think, correct me on this). If they could, why does TPB still exist?

jailbreaking iphones was illegal before, but the jailbreaking tools and forums for that matter already exists, even though it's illegal.

CARDING is illegal, but forums discussing how to card exists.

what is your point again?

Because the legal justification is so incredibly flimsy that they would lose even in a kangaroo court. Content laws are designed for full copies, not torrent links that collect parts of the copy from several different sources.. And now Pirate Bay isn't even located in one place, but the whole thing is in the cloud now, so the location can change in a heartbeat.

And if you think that's dumb, thik about it like this. If a gunsmith tells someone how to convert an existing Ruger mini14 over to full auto, he can be arrested, tried, and convcited of a nebulous charge "conspiracy to violate federal firearms laws". If that same gunsmith provides all the digital files a person needs to have a CNC machine MAKE one from scratch it's completely legal, especially when they link to the ATF paperwork speciifally for that purpose. The result is exactly the same, but one way is arbitrarily legal, one isn't. That's how idiotic these kind of laws can get.

Point being that distribution of JBing tools are illegal along with instructions and methods of doing so. tools will be removed and mouths will be shut.

This could spell the end of great developer communities like XDA which does work within the law.

If you are not a dev and do not know the know hows of the OS then chances are you wont have the knowledge of JBing without the assist of external sources and their provided tools. so you are SOL

Hai from down under as well, TPB is constantly under threat, their founders have been caught and is pending further action. Megaupload is a good example of when the yanks wants to take things seriously.

you are not making any sense, JB'ing tools and websites exists before the legalization of JB'ing, it was not taken down while it is not legal.

lots of illegal things are in the internet, i already gave you one example which is carding.

they can't just magically erase things in the internet even if they want to.

you cannot make MEGAUPLOAD as an example because they are merely just one of the hosts, piracy cannot be stopped as long as internet exists.

They can only attempt to catch the big fish, but they cannot catch every single fish in the ocean

Guys, again, JAILBREAKING/ROOTING DOES NOT EQUAL UNLOCKING. The arguments about jailbreaking only apply to tablets at the moment.

Unlocking an iphone is facilitated by jailbreaking, but jailbreaking an iphone does not mean you are unlocking.

Likewise, rooting an Android device does not mean you're unlocking. Actually, there is no possible way to unlock by rooting, you have to get the code in order to unlock, and the unlock does not require root.
