Makers Must Be Owners: Defend the Right to Tinker


The creativity of new generations of makers is unleashed and new technologies make tinkering easier than ever. But that positive trend is on a collision course with another: the ever-expanding use of legal and technical restrictions on devices to limit owners' rights. It's not just whether you can open the hood; it's whether opening the hood might land you in court. Learn how we got here, what's at stake, and how you can help EFF defend the right to make.
