I personally believe that OS EULAs and ISP ToS guidelines provide for an ISP or an OS mfg (i.e. Microsoft) to force updates and fixes via any means. That is: if I am your customer and my PC/router/USB-Camera/whatever is throwing crap your way, crap that violates your ToS or indicates that I am out of compliance with an EULA, then I believe others have the right (and IMHO the obligation) to step in and correct things (it's what parents do for their kids everyday). So, according to me, any corrective action is lawful when dealing with customers and equipment that have violated an EULA or ToS guidelines. Just my $.02. ;-) -Jim P.
