However, a very small number of consumers advocated for the right to repair. The majority of consumers couldn't careless if they couldn't repair their own device, as FOMO rules the world. So it is possible for a small amount of people to create change.
Yes, and we also have the 1974 Moss/Magnuson Act (back when consumer protection was in vogue) which prevents a company from denying warranty service if you get something repaired outside of an "authorized factory service" center and with aftermarket parts. The difference is that the repair industry is generally not done by publicly traded companies who are worth trillions of dollars, have an army of lobbyists, and have shares owned by our esteemed elected representatives.
Online privacy is also kind of a nebulous concept, especially when most people (including myself) input all manner of private information into search engines not to mention what people put up on Facebook for the whole world to see. Still, at the very least it would be nice to see some type of temporal limit or "right to be forgotten" legislation though, so the bastards don't get to compile a lifelong cradle to grave dossier on everything you do online, as well as a genuine incognito mode that actually works.
