Do You Really Own Your Phone?

When you buy an appliance, an automobile, or anything else do you really own it? Many people like to modify their belongings for better or personalized functioning. Many people enjoy doing their own repairs on the things they own to save money and for the pure enjoyment of self sufficiency.

This has been the case for as long as people have had thumbs. Maybe longer. But major manufacturers of many types of technologies are trying to stop the people who buy their products from repairing them or altering them themselves.

Video game and software manufacturers maintain the right to alter any product you buy at any time whether you want them to or not. Microsoft is the worst offender. Often times these constant updates damage the machines they are forcibly loaded onto.

For some time now, tractor manufacturers have forbidden farmers from performing maintenance on the tractors they buy and use every day. The same thing is now happening to the owners of smartphones. They are being forbidden from repairing or altering the hardware — and are being sued when they do.

The idea that you own the things you buy is being eroded by these companies and the armies of lawyers that work for them. The result is people have to pay for repair service even when they could do the work themselves. It’s an attack on the very principle of the right to own property.

People are going to prison just for trying to repair devices they have purchased outright.
