Apple pursues independent repair technician

Apple преследует независимого мастера по ремонту техники (видео) Apple is very negative about any attempts by independent workshops to repair damaged branded equipment, and the company’s lawyers are closely monitoring all professionals who are trying to help users fix their apple devices cheaper than what is offered in the Apple Store. And this despite the fact that the manufacturer intentionally produces products using non-standard components, unique screws, parts glued together and without distributing through the retail chains and repair shops the documentation, necessary circuits, branded screwdrivers and other accessories required for repair. Recently, the corporation threatened to sue American engineer Louis Rossman, who in May this year posted a video on his YouTube channel How Unauthorized Idiots Fix Apple Laptops, which showed in detail how to diagnose and fix a malfunction on a MacBook Air motherboard with just the knowledge gained , rosins and procrastination, the cost of which is $ 1. A similar repair at the company’s branded service center is valued at $ 750, as it supposedly leads to a replacement motherboard. Just one burnt resistor and they throw away the old board? The story is silent about this, but the fact that Apple is eyeing Rossman is a fact. Officials of the corporation contacted the engineer and said that in his videos the man openly demonstrates fragments of copyrighted schemes. He was asked to remove the video, otherwise Apple would file a lawsuit, and was forbidden to publicly disclose the details of the claims. Louis Rossman, after talking with his lawyer, deleted the video about repairing the MacBook Air laptop, recommending that subscribers download the clips of interest and save them locally. In addition, the master expressed concern about the fate of his YouTube channel and the Rossmann Repair Group. The statement by Apple lawyers that they like his Youtube channel, and in general they are very friendly guys, does not inspire Rossman with optimism. Moreover, such “friendly and mentoring” actions do not reduce the threat of legal action.
