After reviewing the sources that I have gathered in my previous weeks’ assignments, I have noticed an underlying factor between them all.

Senator Charles Schumer (D-New York) first introduced the Mobile Device Theft Deterrence Act of 2012 (S. 3186). This was the first attempt to address phone crimes on a national scale. Due to the previous failure in 2012, the Mobile Device Theft Deterrence Act was re-introduced by Senator Schumer in 2013. It targeted to criminalize tampering with mobile device identification number as a means to halt the black market for stolen cell phones. There is a unique International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number in every smartphone. This number enables local carriers to block operating device’s network and puts it on blacklist. This bill also sought to impose a 5-year criminal penalty for the alternation of IMEI number. Other than these, there were joint efforts between cell carriers and FCC to create Stolen Cell Phone Registry by November 30, 2012 . This registry would store a list of stolen phones’ International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number. However, this database only worked if thieves didn’t tamper cell phone ID number. In fact, there are many loopholes for thieves to get around with such registry. When cellphones are reported stolen, most phone carriers in United States only deactivate the SIM card by prohibiting access to information stored in the SIM card. This blocks the device from using the existing data on the phone. Yet, SIM card can be easily removed and replaced. Stolen cell phones can be sold in black market even if it is blocked. Therefore, there are a lot more to be done to protect public safety and smartphone crimes.

The feud between Apple Company and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) started after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California on December 2015. The FBI named the man responsible for the Massacre as Syed Rizwan Farook along with his wife, Tashfeen Malik. The police killed the couple during the shootout and found an iPhone (Apple product) used by Farook which later the FBI learned was given to him by his employer from the government. In order to trace others involved in the killings, the FBI requested Apple to help them crack the phone because they don’t want to risk deleting the possible information they need. “Cracking the phone” is a process of making a backdoor or breaking into the secured computer system with certain software which enables illegal copying of data (techopedia). I thought it was absurd to know that during the House committee hearing on March 3, 2016, Apple dismissed the FBI request to crack the mobile phone used by Farook in the San Bernardino Massacre on December

The author believes that Apple is better to comply, to assist law enforcement agents. Author think Apple should consider lawfully issued court order at first, then its business
