These same interests also "want" to get rid of open PCs (either by getting rid of PCs, or by locking them down). There is no reason to doubt they would not lobby as hard and effectively for such, if it came down to legal questions, as they have done in the past for changes to copyright law (criminalisation of what used to be civil matters, the criminalisation of making anything that defeats copyright "protection" technologies, etc).
No conspiracy needed, just the continuation of widely documented prior practice.
1. For a definition of "want" == that it is very much in their interests, and consistent with their previous behaviour.
