How Sony, Microsoft, Apple And Others Violate Federal Warranty Law

How many of you guys knew this? I think most people have no idea what their rights are when it comes to warranties and that's why they let themselves be pushed around by manufacturers on stuff like this.

In addition, big manufacturers such as Sony, Microsoft, and Apple explicitly note or imply in their official agreements that their year-long manufacturer warrantiesآ—which entitle you to a replacement or repair if your device is defectiveآ—are void if consumers attempt to repair their gadgets or take them to a third party repair professional. What almost no one knows is that these stickers and clauses are illegal under a federal law passed in 1975 called the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
