Federal Trade Commission to ramp up enforcement to restore right to repair

Source: ZDNET

The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced it has unanimously voted to crack down on illegal repair restrictions that prevent small businesses, workers, consumers, and government entities from fixing their own products.

The FTC said it has adopted a policy statement aimed at manufacturers' practices, which it claimed "make it extremely difficult for purchasers to repair their products or shop around for other service providers to do it for them".

The commission voted 5-0 to approve the policy statement during an open commission meeting on Wednesday.
