24. They is more to the issue than that.

The whole problem of companies making products that are unrepairable by the average person.

The problem of proprietary software in cars, trucks, farm tractors, combines and the like. Mechanics who are unable to repair a without spending tens of thousands of dollars on diagnostic software. Farmers who find out for all intents and purposes that they do not really own their equipment because of fine print in the software that prevents them from repairing their own equipment.

I will say this again..
.
Copyright and patents have gotten way out of control, far from what the founders intended. Just because you create something does mean you should have a lifetime ride. Or do you not believe in "The public interest"?
