> Could you elaborate a bit by what you mean by user autonomy?

I was thinking about user autonomy when using third-party services,
which is not captured by the 4 freedoms alone.

Problematic services include SaaS, storage services (YouTube, Picasa,
DropBox, & co.), and centralized social network systems.  They don't
provide any technical guarantee regarding data confidentiality and
integrity, and usually make it hard to migrate to other service providers,
thereby threatening user autonomy.
