Discussion on: What Does "Right To Repair" Mean to You?

I'd deem this conversation to be complicated and I really don't have a cut-and-dry feeling here with great confidence, but I'd say one thing: Anything that makes reparation more difficult on purpose without legit reason is eggregious.

I recognize that certain types of technology are inherently difficult to repair: Certainly something like a damaged microchip could be inherently irreparable, and maybe sometimes a battery can only fit into the technology in a certain way in order to feasibly create the thing? But RAM which is soldered into place when it could have been removable without great tradeoff, seems pretty crappy.

Tbh cars is very expensive in my country. When I read the article on a Tesla car requiring $16,000 to repair it this destroyed my desire to get a Tesla if the repair is almost 1/2 the price of the car.
