I think this misses a key point - it is not the manufacturer who is installing the upgrade, it is the user, voluntarily choosing to give up some existing functionality in return for some new/improved functionality. The original device, with its original firmware, continues to meet its sales description. So, I doubt there's a legal issue with this.
