The FSF fights for your right to repair

Read this article in Spanish

在world is becoming more software-driven,and manufacturers areincreasingly controlling access to the software on theirdevices.That makes it almost impossible to do some repairs,orto assert ownership。

你can't even begin to repair something if you can't open it upand look at it.You can't do the repair if you aren't allowed tomove the parts around or add your own new parts.When the“something”is software,this means you need to be able to look内部和外部的source code,and you need to be able--and allowed--to change it.If you don't like to do repairsyourself,you need to be able to chooseanyrepair person youtrust to do them。

In a aWIRED opinion piece单击功能区上,Kyle Wiens,founder of该popular electronic repair company iFixit,and one of thespear headers of the right to repair movement,said,“As long as”we’re limited in our ability to modify and repair things,copyright--for all objects-will discourage creativity.Itwill cost us money.It will cost us jobs.And it’s alreadycosting us our freedom.“

Nathan Proctor,who leads the美国公共内部调查组(PIRG)’s右到Repair campaign,spoke toGristsaying,“If you like democracy and freedom,你的should likeright to repair.I believe average citizens should have the power为…We should make it easier for them to takematters into their own hands,for the sake of our collectivefuture.“

从右到右,从左到右Nathan,you can watch hispresentationat the FSF’sLibrePlanet conferencein2019。

右向回油和free software

汽车制动装置,车辆制动装置technology to relying on software.This means that any meaningfulnotion of repair has to include user rights over that software。Without the freedom to run,modify,distribute,and share thesoftware ourselves,we are now putting our lives at the mercy ofmanufacturers。

One example is Tesla,who have introduced asubscription控制,控制数字检测管理,管理(DRM)for their(not your)car to keep it active andupdated while it is with you.They also obstruct access forgeneral repairs,and used or recycled structural parts are notallowed.Nonfree software is making it impossible to see whatsoftware does,or whether it is safe and up to date,or to make itsafe when you know it is not.The right to repair炉膛控制和炉膛安装the manufacturer and their intentions;in this case,Tesla,whowon't let anyone elserepair the bugsin their code,even thesecurity researchers who can steal the car in seconds。

Tesla's developments are an indication of where the future ofelectronics is taking us,which is a future that is dangerouslydependent on proprietary software.But they are far from the onlyexample here.Farmers suffer a similar fate,with列车停车场地下水位线列车,but they merely receive许可证到operatethe,thevehicle.This makes it nearly impossible to repair certain oldermodels when manufacturers decide to no longer maintain thesoftware,which forces farmers into purchasing newequipment.Freedom to share,study,and modify the software would炉膛可支撑的炉膛模,炉膛as protect their freedom。

However,any电炉炉膛炉膛用钢管co-opted byDRM-controlled subscription model Tesla and the proprietary,DRM-controlled subscription model Tesla and thetractor manufacturers are proposing.Imagine your“smart home”having a broken lock,or worse,钢管接头,and nothaving the control,or the simple right to repair thebug.Countless other examples can be found showing us that thekey to a free future is the right to repair.We need to fight forafuture in which the software used is free in order to maintain过载和控制过载,过载过载lives。

Quotes from the community

  • Far from posing a risk to security,repair fosters security inour homes,communities,governments and businesses.By绝缘barriers–whether monetary or logistic–to owners可供使用的回油器服务性,manufacturers施工控制权,施工控制权will be delayed or put off entirely.This,in turn,createsthe environment in which malicious actors thrive。--安全报告条款

  • Just let us fix our stuff。--Nathan Proctor,US PIRG
