Chapter 3: Rebalancing intellectual property rights: A reflection on Australian IPRs, consumer and environmental rights
Restricted access

This chapter examines the role that IPRs play in creating barriers to repairability and investigates how a rebalancing of IPRs could give greater recognition of fundamental consumer and environmental rights. An overview of the positive role that IPRs play in addressing consumer and environmental concerns is given, while acknowledging that IPRs are still at the heart of the repair barriers being experienced. The right to repair movement is then examined with a focus on some Australian regulatory responses that highlight the role that IPRs could play in empowering greater rights to repair and, in turn, creating more environmentally sustainable futures.
