Re:Create Statement on Biden Administration Right-to-Repair Order

Washington, DC – Following President Biden’s executive order directing the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to draft new right-to-repair rules, Re:Create issued the following statement in support of expanding the ability for consumers to repair their own products and devices.

“The Biden administration’s right-to-repair directive will deliver direct benefits to consumers, researchers and innovation, and demonstrates the value it places on pro-consumer policies. The idea that copyright law can be abused to prevent Americans from doing perfectly legal activities shows the breadth and damage that can happen if left unchecked while powerful industries fight to prevent consumers from repairing their stuff. We urge the FTC to act in an expeditious manner to deliver these right-to-repair benefits to American consumers as quickly as possible,” said Re:Create Executive Director Joshua Lamel.
