[E-ScrapNews] Right-to-repair advocates make their case in one statehouse

Quote:
Electronics repair stakeholders clashed over right-to-repair legislation in Washington state this week, as a number of state legislatures begin taking up similar bills.


In Washington state, Senate Bill 5799 would require electronics manufacturers to provide to independent repair shops the parts, tools, equipment and information needed to fix devices. Nationwide, 15 states have active right-to-repair bills, according to The Repair Association, which expects another five or more bills to be introduced this year.

At least 20 state legislatures had right-to-repair legislation introduced last year. No state has yet passed and signed an electronics right-to-repair bill into law.

In Olympia, Wash., right-to-repair proponents and opponents testified during a Jan. 21 hearing in front of the Senate Environment, Energy & Technology Committee, which did not immediately take action on the bill.

Bill sponsor Sen. Bob Hasegawa, D-Seattle, called the legislation a “good small business bill.”

“Big corporations that control the vertical process from manufacturer to end-of-life use don’t need advocacy because they’ve got plenty of advocates down here,” he told the committee. “But I’m here to advocate for small business owners.”

Interesting stuff. Hopefully something like this will be adopted someday. Louis Rossmann is a youtuber some of you might know, and hes made a few videos on this lately.

Please note - Mr. Rossmann also highlighted how COMPTIA of all people are against right to repair, n have minions out lobbying.

if you're just starting out in the IT world and thinking about getting your A+ don't. Go for ITIL, & MCSA instead. Then once you're making money from those, jump into Cisco's tree or something. if you're thinking about network+, don't. Professor Messer + Cisco entry level FTW.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I think this is mostly target at Apple. Anyone who has dony any repairs on a macbook or an Imac over the last decade would know how hard Apple tries to make their machines harder and harder to service.

these anti-rrp folks want that gone too. Jon Deere did it with their tractors. Software locks on repairs, so Mr. Farmer can't just fix it n' go, like they normally do. I suppose that puts a premium on the used market

Apple : it's physically and digitally dangerous!

also apple - : *no shielding on that models' PSU, ok?!"

Having a build that is difficult/nigh impossible to service isn't the same as not having parts/diagrams available to have it serviced.

COMPTIA certs have always been useless and a waste of money.
