'Legislation and regulation are part of the solution, but fixing our culture of repair will demand lasting changes to our behaviour as consumers and citizens'. @APerzanowski (p 268) cambridge.org/core/books/rig…

'Protecting and restoring repair will require us to rethink product design, recalibrate market incentives, and shift the social norms of our consumer culture to better reflect the value of repair' @APerzanowski (p 13) cambridge.org/core/books/rig…

'When it comes to consumer devices, our current levels of consumption are untenable... Through repair, we can ease the environmental strain caused by modern consumerism without denying ourselves the benefits of technology.' @APerzanowski (p 27) cambridge.org/core/books/rig…

'Building on the insights of 20th century planned obsolescence, device makers today have developed a sophisticated array of tools to discourage and obstruct repair.' @APerzanowski focuses on legal, market, and design restrictions on repair (p 72). cambridge.org/core/books/rig…
'An IP System that incorporates sustainability into its understanding of progress is better equipped to serve the needs of society than one that doesn't' @APerzanowski (p 168) cambridge.org/core/books/rig… #righttorepair #SDGs #copyright #designs #trademark #patent🛠️🌏🇺🇳
@APerzanowski 'Rather than one-off enforcement, [the FTC] should undertake a broader effort to reshape the market for repair, both to promote competition and to safeguard the interests of consumers'. @APerzanowski hopes regulators will take sustained action to realise #righttorepair (p 267)
'Laws can be rewritten, markets reorganized, designs reconfigured, and norms reshaped'. @APerzanowski gives a shout-out to Australia's @ozprodcom for its multi-disciplinary approach to the reform of the #righttorepair (p 223) cambridge.org/core/books/rig… #auslaw #auspol 🛠️🇦🇺🌏
@APerzanowski @ozprodcom 'France's stance against planned obsolescence is an important step forward. It recognizes the unavoidable convergence of consumer protection and environmental regulation' @APerzanowski hails the Hamon Law (p 222)

'The #COVID19 pandemic dramatically highlighted the immediate consequences of repair on human welfare' @APerzanowski on the importance of the #righttorepair of ventilators and other medical equipment during the #COVID19 pandemic (p 3) cambridge.org/core/books/rig… #repair #TRIPSwaiver
#ICYMI Here is the final report of Australia's Productivity Commission @ozprodcom on the #righttorepair pc.gov.au/inquiries/comp… 🛠️🌏🇦🇺 #auslaw #auspol No doubt there will be debate by Aussie policy-makers about the recommendations in 2022.
'The havoc wreaked by device production on both the environment and human welfare is fueled by our insatiable desire for new devices' @APerzanowski is much concerned about the environmental benefits of a #righttorepair (p 35) cambridge.org/core/books/rig… #ewaste #environment #climate

#Olywhites - With victory in sight, @NZ_Football concede an equaliser to Honduras in the dying minutes of the second half #Olympics #Tokyo2020
#Olywhites Tragically, @NZ_Football have been overrun by Honduras in the final minutes, and are down 2-3 #Olympics #Tokyo2020 (Saddest moment in New Zealand sport - since New Zealand lost the America's Cup in San Francisco from a dominant position).
(In 2013, Team New Zealand were up 8-1 in the America's Cup and lost 8-9 in the end to Oracle Team USA en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_Amer… New Zealand did not really get over this loss until they decisively won the America's Cup in 2017.)
