These kinds of issues have been more in the public eye when it applies to things like Iphones, but the concept has taken hold across all businesses that produce products meant to last for extended periods of time. Recently Apple lost a case over the right to repair their products & instantly set to selling parts for their products to mitigate the financial damage. Basically they started doing the thing they should have been doing in the first place if hey were an actually ethical company. Unfortunately once a business reaches a certain size it stops caring about the end user as much and begins to exist to continue its own existence. Unless the people with the reigns are controlling them tightly.
If you ever want to hear about how right to repair issues effect people outside of cell phones talk to a farmer. They’ll have some dire tales to tell.
