There's a debate raging on how some automakers are pushing to copyright their software and make owners sign licensing agreements.

Their argument is the software that controls every vehicle function belongs to the automakers, and not the owner of the vehicle.

Our fear is it would undercut mechanics and enthusiasts legal rights to modify their cars to enhance performance with aftermarket parts, regardless if it’s for the street or “Off Highway Use”.

What are everyone’s thoughts on this?

Yep I did here something on the news about this. If this happens tons of companies would lose money so I dont think it will happen. And if they push for it it should be a long battle !
