Does Halacha have a perspective on the right to repair movement? Basically it is a movement to allow people who purchase goods to have the right to repair goods, whereas others argue businesses which sell goods have the right to stipulate they have a monopoly on repairing them when they sell them to consumers.

    If it’s in the contract, it’s in the contract. If it’s not, then it’s not. Not much else to discuss. If you signed the contract, you’re bound by it.

  • @Chatzkel broadly speaking yes, though monopoly regulation is a feature of both Jewish and non-Jewish societies

    @AKA - Price caps, yes. (myjewishlearning.com/article/price-regulation-in-jewish-law). But monopolies in general or on repairs? If they are not overcharging? Commented Mar 21 at 8:27
