In an amusing bit of irony, several companies in the United States are being urged by the Federal Trade Commission to remove the “Warranty Void if Removed” stickers and scrap other onerous policies that appear on their products because they are unenforceable garbage.

The government agency announced Tuesday that it sent letters to six major companies to warn that their warranty policies, which prohibit owners from removing a label or using third-party parts and tools, are prohibited by law and could be considered deceptive under the FTC Act.
