The Biden government is backing the right to repair, as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will have the responsibility to "restrict strong hardware manufacturers from preventing people from using independent repair shops or repairing themselves."
For large tech companies, the Biden government's agenda includes laws that require "greater control of mergers, especially by dominant Internet platforms, with particular attention to emerging competitors, serial mergers, data aggregation, free competition" and the impact on user privacy. ”
Through the FTC, the Biden government plans to impose more regulations on monitoring and data collection, which will affect many of the world's largest technology companies.
In the document, the administration claims that 72 initiatives are being taken to promote competition and increase wages, although it is up to various departments, as well as Congress, to move things forward.

With regard to the limitation of data collection by large technology companies, this is rather easily explained. The power lies in the information, and it seems the Biden government is seeking Big Data only in its huge datacenters. NSA.
