The motor industry Block Exemption Regulations were last renewed in 2002 when a number of changes were introduced to increase competition in sales and servicing or repair.

The current Block Exemption Regulations expire in 2010 and the freedom to have your car serviced or repaired where you choose, is under threat.

Could this article, potentially, be used to sway future decision making on Block Exemption Regulations for the motor industry? Is this a tactic to make the data that is essential to fixing your car in the future more elusive and expensive?
