Is “Right To Repair” Much Ado About Nothing?
Ag Entertainment • 42m
More than half the states in the U.S. are considering “right-to-repair” laws according to a recent article. Legislation at the federal level is being pushed by Montana senator Jon Tester. Pushers of “right-to-repair” regulation position themselves as victims of big equipment companies. Big equipment companies, on the other hand, claim they have the right to void warranties if owners put the wrenches to their increasingly sophisticated machines and, in doing so, make a mess. Ultimately, I believe this issue will resolve itself as equipment gets increasingly complex and as the ownership model morphs into more of a subscription. Fred Simkin, right-to-repair proponent and engineer joins me for a discussion (and occasional disagreement) on the subject.
