This is one aspect of technology usage in automotive industry that none should have anticipated, the application of "copyright laws" like DMCA to your vehicles because they are now computing platforms. Automakers are doing their bit to support copyright law provisions which would prohibit home mechanics and car enthusiasts from repairing and modifying vehicles, Automaker OEMs and their lobbying organizations have filed comments to the federal agency saying cars have become too complex and dangerous for consumers and third parties to handle. The automotive industry has now raised concerns that modifying these ECUs and the software coding that runs them could lead to vulnerabilities in vehicle safety and cyber security. The "copyright" angle to the dispute arises from a section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act which defines it's applicability to "rolling computing platforms". The U.S. Copyright Office is now examining whether provisions of the law that protect intellectual property should prohibit people from modifying and tuning their cars.
