Re: The president can't do anything here

Congress can change anything especially concerning a group that they created to offload their workload to.

If they want to make it legal to unlock a phone, then they can make it legal and they can do this regardless of what the Library of Congress does or says.

Congress can, but the president can't, at least not directly. In fact, even the Librarian of Congress can't for the next three years.

So basically, if you want this changed in the next three years, Congress is the only option. Well, you could sue on the grounds that the DMCA was never intended to cover phone unlocking, but that will take a while to wind through the court system.
