I have no problem with this statement. Do you think that selecting benign statements out of my post and trying to embarass me with them is a debate in good faith.

Ooooh, big bad Disney. I have the utmost respect for Disney, there are few corporations in America that express the true heart and soul of the American people as well as Disney does. My kids grew up on Disney, and they are better people for it. How many companies can claim that? I am sure this statement is taken out of context to promote an agenda.
The part I have a problem with is
"DRM technologies are based on the principle that a third party has more influence over your devices than you, and that their interests will override yours when they come in conflict. That is even true where your interest is perfectly legitimate and legal, and possibly also for your own data".
This is FUD, that has no basis in fact, nor does it have a basis in law.
