"If you step outside your own front door... you have no rights if you are 'not in control'?"
Physical freedoms aren't the same thing as purposely placing ideas into the public domain. Me walking The Plaza here in Sonoma with one or more of my dawgs isn't the same thing as posting images on !GooMyFaceYouTwit of the same activity. I can protect me & my dawgs in TheRealWorld[tm] ... But once I make our info available electronically, it is out of my hands.
"If you create a piece of software/music/writing... you have no rights if you are 'not in control'?"
You are confusing copyright with control of distribution channels.
"If your children go to school... you have no rights because you are 'not in control'?"
There is so much wrong with your concept that I'll leave it alone.
"Is that really the extent of law enforcement you aspire to?"
This isn't about law enforcement. This is about reality.
"Personally, at the point I am 'not in control' I expect the state and law enforcement to protect me."
::rolls eyes:: You are part of the problem. Do you REALLY enjoy your nanny-state?
"If Google are breaking the law, I want the law enforced against them. And robustly too."
But you, yourself, on purpose, actually placed that information on google-owned systems, right? Can you understand why, from my perspective, you shouldn't be allowed access to Internet connected computers until you have a firm, robust, grasp of the ramifications?
