UNEDA joins Repair.org
March 24, 2020
UNEDA joins Repair.org, an association that represents the needs and interests of the repair industry. Combining forces with Repair.org will strengthen our fight for Owners Rights for both consumers and businesses.
“For hundreds of years, Americans have been buying and selling products without worrying if they had the ability to tinker with, repair, and reuse those products. But more and more common goods now come with restrictions on your ability to do all that — or even hire someone you trust to do it for you. Some products even come with contracts and mandatory licenses that interfere with your right to resell your product.
A free, independent market for repair and reuse is more efficient, more competitive, and better for consumers. Repair helps create local jobs, and repair and reuse benefits the environment by reducing end-of-life electronic products. The freedom to maintain, innovate, and improve upon our products is imperative. These basic freedoms are essential to American economic growth and creativity, and must be preserved for the 21st century.”
