    Jailbreaking/Rooting Exemption to DMCA Soon to Expire; EFF Doesn't Want That


    Here is an issue that is near and dear to many hearts in the Android community. Rooting could soon become illegal to do on your smartphone, unless the Electronic Frontier Foundation can help get the word out to stop it. You see, a set of anti-circumvention exemptions was added to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) by the US Copyright Office in 2010, that effectively made it legal to jailbreak/root smartphones. But those exemptions were only a temporary measure, and were never made permanent, and now they are soon going to expire.

    The EFF is trying to get the word out so the community can "convince the Copyright Office to renew its exemptions and expand them to a wider range of devices, including tablets and video game consoles." They are calling on devs, programmers and anyone that wants to get involved to contact the Copyright Office directly and voice your opinion on this important issue. The EFF added,

    "Concrete examples will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking."
    EFF also works to stop poor legislation like SOPA and PIPA as well. If you would like to get involved, check out the EFF source link below for more info.
