Glossary Term:
Right to Repair

The ability of a device owner or repairperson to access technical information for fixing that device, superceding IP exclusivity claims by the device manufacturer. The Right to Repair issue initially centered on problems in the consumer automotive sector, but farmers have experienced DMCA claims for repairing agricultural equipment viewed by the manufacturer as merely being licensed.
