Besides the simple concreteness of “right to repair” there are some other benefits I see as well:
- MUCH easier to apply to physical systems and products than trying to awkwardly apply software licensing concepts directly
- clear line to political action (e.g. improved consumer protection legislation)
- disentangled from intellectual property concepts we may not need or want to keep around in the long term
“Right to repair” also pairs REALLY nicely with sustainability.
Let us replace batteries so we don’t have to landfill devices! Etc. Etc.
