The issue of cell phone unlocking has been hanging in the air since a very long time and this Act was part of the several proposals which came forward this year with this regard. The Act came into place after several calls were put forward by the White House itself. A huge role was also played by an online petition which managed to get over 100,000 signatures seeking to legalize cellular unlocking once again in the country. Thanks to Sen. Patrick Leahy for finally taking this step and having this bill get passed from the Senate and the House. It is finally being signed by the president to become a law.
