The panel will address trademark, copyright, and trade secret law, as well as recent enforcement actions and guidance form the Federal Trade Commission, and the implications of each on right to repair claims. The panel will also discuss the manufacturers' procompetitive justifications for denying repair rights and whether the restrictions have potential anti-competitive effects. The panel will offer best practices for companies navigating the right to repair regulatory landscape.
