    Are Modchips Illegal In the U.S.?

    I thought modchips were legal since they had legitimate purposes such as fair use of one's own backups. Does anyone know the state of the law regarding modchips in the U.S. or is this a gray area?

    "The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) cites that circumvention devices, including, but not limited to mod-chips, are illegal, because the device circumvents the copy-protection features of their host systems." - Wikipedia

    Mod chips are in fact illegal in the states. BUT since there is so much gray area you can obtain a mod chip with a problem.
