Farm Groups File File Complaint With FTC Against Deere’s Right To Repair Restrictions


According to a report from KCRG-TV in Des Moines, Iowa, the National Farmers Union, Iowa Farmers Union and other state farmers unions are petitioning the Federal Trade Commission to open an investigation into Deere over repair restrictions related to the right to repair movement.

According to the complaint, petitioners allege that Deere’s policy of withholding from its customers diagnostic software and other information necessary to repair the Deere equipment they own violates the Sherman Act and constitutes an unfair and deceptive trade practice, and they request that the Commission enjoin Deere’s unlawful conduct.

The issues raised in the complaint are consistent with those filed by other groups in recent weeks.
