Who Owns Your Car? And Your Future?
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
The Consumerist reports a surprise:“Congratulations! You just bought a new Chevy, GMC, or Cadillac. You really like driving it. And it’s purchased, not leased, and all paid off with no liens, so it’s all yours… isn’t it? Well, no, actually: according to GM, it’s still theirs. You just have a license to use it.
At least, that’s what an attorney for GM said at a hearing this week, Autoblog reports. Specifically, attorney Harry Lightsey said, “It is [GM’s] position the software in the vehicle is licensed by the owner of the vehicle.”” Seehttp://consumerist.com/2015/05/20/gm-that-car-you-bought-were-really-the-ones-who-own-it/
When your past, present, and future safety are under corporate control…is that a new form of slavery?
