Is it now legal to reverse-engineer Segways (for repair) in the USA?

Recommended Posts

Looks like the DMCA has been removed from the repair of "motorized land vehicles".

Unfortunately "It's still illegal for companies in the US to sell DRM-breaking tools commercially," at least according to the article below. Note that it seems Public Domain release would appear to be legal now, and may (eventually) allow widespread repair of MiniPro (so we can make them safer by removing push-back, for example). Interesting...


Note that the stickers Segway uses to stop you disassembling anything are apparently already illegal...
