Copyright law would turn millions into criminals

This is just another example of some of the threats we are facing as already quite oppressive governments who let their power be heavily abused by corporate interests increasingly turn to the use of technology to regulate everything we do, against our freedom.

When they start using technological locks, just civil disobedience wont do. The only way to fight back against technological locks is by technological means. This is one case where Freedomware plays a crucial role, not so much because "copyleft" licenses state you have certain rights, but because it usually comes with source code.

Source code access will be increasingly important and crucial. If you've got a whole operating system (or more) with full access to the source then you've got a platform that's still fully under your control and can therefore use to bypass the locks.
