Faculty of Law, University of Lucknow is organising a seminar on Right to repair and consumer protection law in India on April 15, 2023.
About the Seminar
In recent years, There has been a growing movement advocating for the “right to repair.” The idea is to give people and small businesses easier access to tools, parts and information so they can fix their own electronics, appliances and other stuff.
The right to repair movement also seeks to promote sustainability by reducing electronic waste and extending the lifespan of products. However, there are many challenges to implementing the right to repair, including intellectual property laws, consumer safety concerns, and industry resistance.
This seminar is intended to promote awareness and understanding of the right to repair as well as safeguard the interests of consumers. Explore the legal, technical and social challenges to implementing the right to repair and discuss possible solutions. Discuss the role of various stakeholders, including consumers, manufacturers, governments, and civil society, in promoting and protecting the right to repair.
Another objective is to identify best practices by corporate houses and judicial attitudes in ensuring the right to repair. The seminar will provide a platform for participants to exchange ideas and experiences and to explore ways to promote and protect the right to repair.
The seminar will also contribute to building a network of stakeholders working towards a more sustainable and equitable future.
