    The Electronic Freedom Foundation has been asked to investigate. Should they?

    Don’t think it’s worth the EFF’s time. They’re mostly concerned with reverse-engineering rights, and other rights to do what you want with the devices you own. Example, years ago the EFF helped make jailbreaking cell phones legal. They also help users if a company takes legal action against them, not the other way around. The automatic updates clause in the Windows 7/8 EULAs probably cover this sort of thing anyways. Solution, don’t use Windows, or hack your copy of Windows to make it work the way you want and the EFF will defend your right to do that.
