the notion of having technology built into a device that keeps others from using it is hardly new and has often been thought of as a good idea
This is a pretty galling, facile, and disingenuous reframing of what's actually going on there, blithely ignoring salient details in order to reform it as "just another anti-theft" device (which isn't even the only use covered in the patent).
