Thanks Bas. I completely share your view. It's unfortunate that it's so

It's not your fault! Nobody (well, at least not me) is pretending that
you're the source of this problem. However, that doesn't mean that the
solution you want to apply is legitimate.
The DRM opt-in fallacy: "Your data belongs to us. We will decide when (and
how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
