+&lt;p&gt;Nonfree (proprietary) software is very often malware (designed to
+mistreat the user). Nonfree software is controlled by its developers,
+which puts them in a position of power over the users; &lt;a
+href="/philosophy/free-software-even-more-important.html"&gt;that is the
+basic injustice&lt;/a&gt;. The developers often exercise that power to the
+detriment of the users they ought to serve.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;Tethering a product or program to a specific server is an injustice
+in itself.  This page reports instances where tethering was used to
+harm the users directly.&lt;/p&gt;
+<span class="inserted"><ins><em>&lt;div class="important"&gt;</em></ins></span>

+    &lt;p&gt;The article focuses on a further nasty fillip, that sales of the

+    &lt;p&gt;A half-blind security critique of a tracking app: it found that

it all.
