#VoidIfRemoved Contest Winners—Part 2


A couple weeks ago, consumer rights group U.S. PIRG released a study reporting that 45 out of 50 manufacturers void warranties if their products have undergone third-party repair. This, of course, is not only rude but illegal—and we’ve been galvanizing our online community to hold offending companies accountable.

Back in April, when the FTC sent letters to six manufacturers condemning their use of illicit ‘warranty void’ stickers, we hosted a subsequent sticker hunt  to really drive home their message. But apparently that didn’t scare them enough—so we decided to give them another fright by re-opening our #VoidIfRemoved contest. You guys sure showed us that you weren’t ready to give up the good fight, and at last, on this All Hallows’ Eve, we have our winners!

I demand a right to repair. This #VoidIfRemoved nonsense is getting out of hand. This isn’t even about third party repair, it’s about second party maintenance. pic.twitter.com/j0A3BnTzcv

Thank you to everyone who participated! We’ve gathered all of your submissions to send to the FTC. Now enjoy the rest of your Halloween knowing that you helped us pull off the biggest fright of them all.
