Government Petition to Ban Region Locking (Shortblog)

Now HERE'S a petition I can get behind.

It looks like a bunch of American citizens are trying to get the attention of the U.S. government, hoping to have them ban the use of region locking in a bunch of different forms of electronic media. Games, movies, software and others are all included in this petition.

While I don't think it'll actually pass (at least, not so easily), this is fantastic news. There's literally NO POINT to region locking games. People may argue that it helps companies to better keep track of their sales in a particular region, but I say that all it does is get people to either hack their hardware (which shouldn't be necessary at all) or pirate games. This would be good for everyone involved.
