Agreed.  However, the principle of restriction of your right to use your
computer unfettered already exists.  Thus it becomes an argument of
whether your use of your computer can become damaging rather than one of
the (more invasive) right to restrict.  Thus it becomes easier for the
EUCD to prevail.
