Let's suppose I'm a citizen who is very dissatisfied with misleading digital storage drive capacity labeling, where manufacturers use fake
GB (base-10 SI metric decimal
giga unit prefix equals to 1000 in power of 3) instead of correct (in context of computing and computer science) base-2 binary scale units (e.g.
GiB with prefix
gibi equals to 1024 in power of 3).
Aforementioned means that instead of expected 64 binary
GB I could get 64 decimal
GB which is around 59 binary
Hence the questions:
- Who decides how those products could be labeled?
- If I would like to put an end on this misleading practice, who should I ask for help?
- To whom should a possible petition for more correct labeling be addressed to?
The context is international market, I suppose, but also could be local.
