Question: The petition says "We understand what they are protecting by locking the device.."
I actually am curious about that, as far as I know.. neither the manufacturer nor the carrier makes any sort of money off the software that we remove. Nor do they make any money off future updates that we may not need with custom roms.
So, I actually don't understand why they do lock the device? The ever wise HTC says "Don't pirate the carriers software and its all good..." So, what exactly IS motorola protecting? To me right now it just seems apple-esque.
