What is the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act?
The Federal Trade Commission Magnuson-Moss Act protects consumers. This act passed in 1975 states tie-in sales provisions are NOT allowed in consumer warranties. Manufacturers cannot require consumers to purchase items or services in order to keep their warranty valid.
Essentially, the act states that a warrantor cannot require the consumer of their product to buy an additional product or service to be used with the original product in order to maintain the original product warranty.
Neither can the manufacturer state that the system warranty is void if other "brands" of peripherals are used.
