This is in regards to all the discussion of transfering warranties.
I humbly believe that your policy of not transfering your written waranty is unlawful and illegal (but I still love you all :innocent: ... Please don't black list me :innocent: ). Acording to the TITLE 15 > CHAPTER 50 Section § 2304 of the Federal Trade Code, Red must honor a written warranty. Here is why:
SECTION § 2304
[All emphasis and underlining mine]
In order for a warrantor warranting a consumer product by means of a written warranty to meet the Federal minimum standards for warranty—
(1) such warrantor must as a minimum remedy such consumer product within a reasonable time and without charge, in the case of a defect, malfunction, or failure to conform with such written warranty;
(4) The duties under subsection (a) of this section extend from the warrantor to each person who is a consumer with respect to the consumer product.
TITLE 15 > CHAPTER 50 > § 2301. DEFINITIONS:
(3) The term “consumer” means a buyer (other than for purposes of resale) of any consumer product, any person to whom such product is transferred during the duration of an implied or written warranty (or service contract) applicable to the product, and any other person who is entitled by the terms of such warranty (or service contract) or under applicable State law to enforce against the warrantor (or service contractor) the obligations of the warranty (or service contract).
F U R T H E R M O R E....
Duties and conditions imposed on consumer by warrantor
(1) In fulfilling the duties under subsection (a) of this section respecting a written warranty, the warrantor shall not impose any duty other than notification upon any consumer as a condition of securing remedy of any consumer product which malfunctions, is defective, or does not conform to the written warranty [...]
In other words... Red may not impose any 'creative' restrictions on warranty to try to manipulate or control the second-hand market. So maybe it's time for Red to consult lawyers on this.
Anyway, just trying to be helpful while I myself are considering a Red One purchase as a second-hand item.
