New York Governor Kathy Hochul has signed the Digital Fair Repair Act into law but not before making major amendments that render it ‘functionally useless’, according to right to repair activist Louis Rossmann.

The idea behind right to repair legislation is to force manufacturers to make available documentation and parts so that customers or third party repair persons can fix their devices. For example, if a chip fails on your laptop’s motherboard, you could have that chip replaced, without needing to purchase a new motherboard and pay for an expensive repair.
