Why aren’t consumers allowed to fix their gadgets on their own terms?
Advocates worldwide have been attempting to push for effective’ right to repair’ laws. The ‘right to repair’ movement has faced resistance from tech giants such as Apple, Amazon, Tesla, and Microsoft. They counter that opening up their design and IP to third-party services, or repairers could lead to IP misuse and reduce the safety and security of their devices.
The goal of the ‘right to repair’ movement is to get manufacturers of devices to make spares, tools, and the know-how to repair devices available to the public to increase the lifespan of products, improve recycling and eliminate waste.
US President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling on the Federal Trade Commission to curb restrictions imposed by manufacturers that limit consumers’ ability to repair their gadgets on their terms. The UK also introduced right-to-repair rules that make it much easier to buy and repair daily-use gadgets.
