This Note argues that fair repair legislation is not fair for manufacturers, and suggests that legislators look to a solution that has proved workable in an analogous context in the automobile repair industry. Part I outlines the history of the electronic device repair market and discusses the proposed state legislation. It concludes that federal copyright law is insufficient, current state proposals are flawed, and that a different solution is necessary. Part II will discuss alternate solutions in the automobile industry, legislation tailored to the agriculture industry, and recent concessions by a well-known manufacturer. Part III will propose a standardized practice to reconcile the deficits in the proposed state legislation while harmonizing consumer needs with adequate manufacturer protection.
