Pretty sure he was literally talking about the ticket inspectors and the folks trying to get a free train ride.
I'm with you on the DRM thing. I appreciate that IF you break copyright law, then there may be a rationale for also hitting you with a charge of breaking a lock to do it.
But if there is no violation, or even intent of violation, then breaking the lock should not be considered wrong.
