    I think that would fall foul of at least EU law that requires third parties to be able to service and maintain vehicles, since the requirement for ODIS online could be argued as a restrictive practice.

    I suspect US law will have a view about it too...

    Unfortunately FIAT Chrysler are already doing it.
    Many 2018 or newer models have a Security Gateway Module between the diagnostic socket and the system behind.
    They are licensing access to their security server, but I've heard rumours of applications from some of the big Chinese players in the diagnostic market being rejected.
    I'm not aware of a legal challenge happening yet.
    Apparently I should put something witty or profound in here.....

    My understanding is that as long as the "tool" is made available, US law will be met. Pay basis and so on is permitted and there are no stipulations on the range of cost permitted. The law only deals with availability by any who would want access.
