Seems to be perfectly wise if you're a business and care more about making money than getting all tangled up in pesky things like morals and ethics. It's great when you can help the balance sheet by converting "ongoing support costs" and "loss of paying customers" into what economists call "externalities" (in other words, they make the decisions, but somebody else gets to actually pay for the choices made).
