The last is the killer; say you're a suspected dissident that's prohibited
from using a computer or computing software, making your copying of the
software illegal. Thus after using this software send an email to 
journalists revealing the ongoing genocide of your people, and escaping 
to the free world, you are now open to civil prosecution for copyright 
violation. It discriminates against classes of users and thus violates
the DFSG.
