Extortion?

In Scotland, clamping a car and demanding money to free it is regarded as extortion, and is illegal.

If data has value, then this would seem to fall under the same legislaton.

It is perhaps time for someone to bring a private prosecution against Sonos, as happened with the car clampers.
