Right to Repair Laws


Recommended Posts

I see where the EU has a new right-to-repair law: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/eu-repair-laws-require-technology-144409354.html

I'm sure the scope of this law will eventually expand to include gaming devices, if it doesn't already, and spread to the US.  Reading thru it, I had a hazy memory that the US used to have laws mandating the availability of spare parts for consumer electronics. Not quite the same as right-to-repair laws, which have as much to do with the who and how of repairs as they do spare parts, but these laws did ensure that a thing could be repaired, even if you did have to go to an authorized repair shop.  These laws (if my memory isn't totally wrong) were just ignored by the flood of cheap imported electronics using the claim of repairability=higher prices.  Think the new laws will end up any different?
