"Right to Repair legislation would also help to return competition to the marketplace, giving consumers more options about where and how to repair their products", writes Kay Kay Clapp, director of communications for DIY repair vendor iFixit.
"The Right to Repair Act will provide consumers with the freedom to have their electronic products and appliances fixed by a repair shop or service provider of their choice, a practice that was taken for granted a generation ago but is now becoming increasingly rare in a world of planned obsolescence", Eggman said. It's going to be an uphill legal fight, so get your popcorn ready, Californians!
California is not alone in its mission to make repairing electronics a more feasible option. "These companies are profiting at the expense of our environment and our pocketbooks as we become a throw-away society that discards over 6 million tons of electronics every year".
The idea, says Eggman, is to allow consumers and independent repair shops the ability to fix phones, computers, and appliances on their own rather than locking them out of the devices and limiting repairs to vendor-owned shops (looking at you, Apple).
"Consumers Union thanks Assembly Member Eggman for her efforts to ensure consumers have the choice to fix their own electronic devices or have them fixed by an independent repair servicer", says Maureen Mahoney, a San Francisco-based policy analyst for Consumers Union. "After all, that's how many of today's most successful innovators got started". "We look forward to working with Assemblymember Eggman to secure this important ownership right for consumers". By being able to fix your own device, it would encourage people to be more adventurous when it comes to fixing their device, and could possibly lead to rise of new innovators and inventors.
