The DMCA ruling. Can we get a better handle on it?
In October of 2012, the Library of Congress added an exemption to the DMCA to allow folks to free their new phones for 90 days. That three month window has now closed as of Jan 26th 2013. Of course, carriers are still free to offer unlocked handsets themselves, and some will also unlock them for you as long as certain conditions are met. "Legacy" or used handsets purchased before today can still be unlocked without any finger-wagging from federal courts.
Can we have someone report on what exactly this means so that we do not have a "the sky is falling" issuePalm Centro, Palm Pre +, HTC Rezound, Samsung Galaxy S4

I am the Tegra Champ. What this means is that from time to time NVIDIA might send me new products to try out. This will not affect my thoughts, ideas, or opinions about any product that are discussed in the forums. Those are still my own.
