Topic: The Right to Repair

Should the owners of devices, from smartphones to home appliances, have the right to repair them? Or should device makers be able to dictate the availability and terms of repair? Over the past year, more than half of state legislatures around the country have considered right to repair legislation. More recently, the FTC responded to an executive order from the Biden administration by outlining an aggressive agenda targeting repair restrictions. The right-to-repair debate raises crucially important questions at the intersection of IP, antitrust, and consumer protection law.

Professor Aaron Perzanowski

Prof. Perzanowski is the Associate Director of the Spangenberg Center for Law, Technology & the Arts at Case Western Reserve University School of Law. He teaches copyright, trademark, and property law. His research on the intersection of intellectual and personal property explores the notion of ownership in a digital economy. And his work on IP and social norms considers the ways in which informal governance influences creative production. His latest book, The Right to Repair, is forthcoming from Cambridge University press.
