Agreed. Even more than that, however, is this idea that modern companies like Apple have been pushing that, THEY own all of their tech, but for a not-so-small fee, customers are allowed to use it. If, however, they don’t like what you’re doing, they can permanently revoke your access (such as Facebook and Oculus products), and they can brick your device (for your own good, according to them) if you dare to repair it yourself.
This should be absolutely criminal! And if it weren’t for the fact that much of our government has come to serve the interests of the tech oligarchs rather than the people, the FTC would have fixed this long ago!
