“Americans should not be subject to fines and criminal liability for merely unlocking devices and media they legally purchased,” said Rep. Lofgren in a press release. “If consumers are not violating copyright or some other law, there’s little reason to hold back the benefits of unlocking so people can continue using their devices.”
Lofgren’s bill attracted enthusiastic support from activists and advocacy groups that had been lukewarm about previous unlocking bills.

“This legislation is exactly what the digital community was asking for,” he told us in a phone interview. “It’s exactly what the small cell phone providers were looking for. Unlike the other legislation, it actually solves the problem.”
Sane copyright reform? Probably means it’ll never pass.
