NYPIRG Explains New Right to Repair Law

New York became the first state to pass a Right to Repair law for digital devices, though the Governor must still sign it. Companies selling tech products in New York that are covered will be obligated to distribute information, software, tools, and parts so that individuals and independent repair shops can repair personal devices on their own. Russ Haven of NYPIRG explains the eight-year fight to win this right. He also discusses reforms to the wrongful death law that allows family members and partners to sue for financial and emotional harm. With Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
