Welcome to 2021 everyone, hope you've had a great holiday season and are getting back into the swing of things.
While we were enjoying the season the Australian Government has been busy publishing an issue paper and soliciting public submissions relating to our Right to Repair. The papers focus is on "consumers’ ability to repair faulty goods and to access repair services at a competitive price" and "barriers and enablers of competition in repair markets and the costs and benefits of a regulated ‘right to repair’, including facilitating access to embedded software"
This looks like it's right up our alley and it would be great to kick off the year with another submission. During the meetup we'll review the issue paper and jointly prepare our own submission. We could also create micro-blog templates to help people get the word out. Submissions are due by Monday 1 February 2021.
For anoyone wanting to check it out before the meeting or write your own submission you can find further information here: https://www.pc.gov.au/inquiries/current/repair/issues
We’ll be meeting virtually via Big Blue Button at 7:30pm on Thursday the 21st. No prior technical knowledge is required so feel free to join the discussion, make suggestions or just listen in.
