PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The White House agrees with the 114.000+ of you who believe that consumers should be able to unlock their cell phones without risking criminal or other penalties. In fact, we believe the same principle should also apply to tablets, which are increasingly similar to smart phones. And if you have paid for your mobile device, and aren't bound by a service agreement or other obligation, you should be able to use it on another network. It's common sense, crucial for protecting consumer choice, and important for ensuring we continue to have the vibrant, competitive wireless market that delivers innovative products and solid service to meet consumers' needs."

They want to legalize cell-phone unlocking, but the Obama administration along with the RIAA and MPAA pressured isps to implement a six-strike policy to punish consumers who download/uploaded copyrighted material?

Okay, how about how reforming copyright law, and getting off the isps back so consumers can download/uploaded whatever the hell they want. Someone can be fined or have their internet service cut off just for torrenting a TV show. Talk about a violation of civil liberties.
