CTIA Statement After the U.S. House of Representatives Passed the Cellphone Unlocking Bill

After the U.S. House of Representatives passed on a voice vote the cellphone unlocking bill, I said:

“Today’s action by the House moves us closer to alleviating any confusion stemming from the Copyright Office’s 2012 decision and we await the President’s signature on the bill to compete this process. At the same time, it is important to note that CTIA’s members already committed to a set of voluntary principles that enable consumers interested in unlocking their devices to do so. Nonetheless, we greatly appreciate the care that Chairmen Leahy and Goodlatte took in crafting their legislation and avoiding the imposition of any new regulatory obligations on wireless providers.”
