EFF Special Advisor Cory Doctorow and EFF attorney Kit Walsh will be answering user questions in a Reddit IAmA titled Fix and Jailbreak ALL THE THINGS! They will be joined by Kyle Wiens of iFixit.
Electronics repair creates 150 (middle class, on-shore, local) jobs per ton of ewaste, while recycling creates a mere 15. We’re asking the Copyright Office for permission to bypass DRM to fix a wide variety of electronics, from phones to consoles to cars to tractors; and also for the right to jailbreak the Internet of Things to install your own firmware, create your own features, and configure these devices to do your bidding, rather than some distant tech giant's.
The Reddit IAmA will take place between 11AM to 3PM PDT.
