“The Automotive Free Clinic is starting a right to repair campaign in Alabama in coalition with a number of different organizations. Modern equipment such as passenger vehicles, semi trucks, and farm equipment are controlled electronically by proprietary software. Often, this software is not made available to the public, meaning that only dealerships and authorized repair shops can repair certain aspects of the equipment. As a strategy for freed market anarchists, right to repair offers a number of opportunities including the building of populist campaigns, challenging intellectual property, expanding the market and eliminating monopolies, and maybe most important, solving a practical problem.” (11/04/21)
