Could someone try to explain this situation to me again? I'm too stupid to understand it, it seems.
Why does anyone care, or even has a supposed "right" to interfere, about what I do with a product I bought or licensed the use of a copy?
If I buy a cell phone, or a eBook reader - why should the original vendor have any right to know/control what I do with it?
I could use it to wipe my bottom and it would be none of their business.
They're not involved anymore - as long as I don't claim warranty or resell it.
I could see the problem if what I did would in any way involve them - like trying to jailbreak a device, brick it and try to get a refund.
But that's not the issue, is it?
I assume car manufacturers are going to make it illegal to drive cars outside certain countries? Or only use with unleaded, ethanol-free gas?
