LXer: Industry, and Apple, opposing “right to repair” laws

Published at LXer:

Ahead of a 2010 decision by federal regulators to legalize mobile phone jailbreaking, Apple had cautioned US Copyright Office officials that doing so would have "potentially catastrophic" (PDF) consequences because hackers wielding jailbroken iPhones might take down the nation's mobile phone networks.Clearly, Apple's scare tactics were designed to protect its own business model—as jailbroken phones can bypass Apple' App Store and get apps elsewhere.
