It's like saying:
Hey barcode readers owners shouldn't be allowed to tweak their devices. Therefore the GPLv2 is bad because it doesn't allow people to embed binary-only drivers into the Linux kernel to prevent this!
Also manufacturers are legally obligated to restrict certain frequencies and power outputs on their Wifi cards. The Linux kernel being GPLv2 doesn't allow people to embed binary modules to prevent this and thus GPLv2 is bad.
It's realy kinda silly.
