The New FTC Chair is Good News for R2R

It appears that antitrust expert Lina Khan won’t just be joining the FTC as a commissioner, she’ll be appointed as the FTC’s new Chair. 


Khan, who is an associate professor at Columbia Law School, has been called a “fierce advocate for consumers”, and Right-to-Repair folks are calling it a “win.” Lina Khan FTC NWIDA

Kahn has investigated anti-competitive practices of big tech companies and understands how these practices can harm consumers and restrict competition.  

In 2017, she wrote a paper on Amazon’s commerce platform, called Amazon’s Antitrust Paradox,  in which she called for updates to antitrust laws. Her work was deemed essential to a 2020 House Subcommittee hearing on digital market antitrust. 

iFixit said, “With her appointment, Right to Repair gains perhaps its highest-profile advocate, and people get a committed advocate to their right to fix the things they own, regardless of what the biggest companies would prefer.”
