France goes after companies for deliberately shortening life of hardware

'Printer manufacturers "deliberately shorten the life of printers and cartridges," a French environmental and consumer protection group claims. That's against the law in France, and government prosecutors have agreed to investigate the claims.

If the lawsuit against the printer company, Japan-based Epson, is proven, the firm could be found guilty of breaking a little-known French law that stipulates vendors can't purposefully lower the lifespan of a product to ramp up replacement rates.

A conviction could be significant for tech hardware manufacturing overall. Nabbing Epson would likely affect not only how hardware is built and sold in France, but it also could mean laws get adopted in other European territories —individual nations are involved in the functioning of the EU bloc overall.

Indeed, such a conviction against the Japanese printer maker may ultimately signal the end of a globally performed business practice, one that has been taking place since the automobile reached market saturation in 1924 and car makers began introducing model years.'
