    Not true! You may not like it but

    If you modify the electrical box you own on the house you own to bypass the meter - you have broken the law (theft of service)... there are many other examples of "stealing services" through modifying ("hacking") personal property - this is just an old and egregious form

    Presently many cars and even motos come with subscription based capabilities... nothing changes on the hardware you *own* (nor the software), just a code you have to pay for and if you manage to modify the vehicle you own to enable those capabilities without paying the subscription fees you have also broken the law ... I don't like this and will avoid it kicking and screaming but it exists and is only growing and for me to ignore it would make me ignorant...

    Europe in a major energy crisis AND they say we have this climate change going on too.


    I got a super idea !!!! Lets make e-bikes totally suck on the entire continent of Europe with some dumb ass 250 watt 15 mph rule !! That way e-bikes don't sell and people keep using their cars making both problems worse.

    "Under the Confederation of European Bicycle Industry (CONEBI), 15 national bicycle industry associations in Europe and 68 companies have signed onto an industry-wide commitment to prevent owners from hacking their e-bikes for more speed and power."

    Whats with that word "hacking" as if its somehow criminal to play with and modify your own property.

    "Hacking is the act of identifying and then exploiting weaknesses in a computer system or network, usually to gain unauthorized access to personal or organizational data.​"

    You can't "hack" your own stuff just like you cant steal your own stuff.
