I think we will find that there is a balance to be struck between rights (freedom) and responsibility. If we were all willing to assume perfect and complete responsibility for all aspects of our use of technology, including accepting the complete consequences of any decisions made, then no governence would be necessary. As soon as we want something like "support", "warrantee", or "protection" we begin to accept governence in exchange for giving up those "rights".
Additionally, nothing in this world is free. It is not always clear where your "financial payment" occurs, but don't be fooled, it does occur. Many times, it is so abstract that you don't think about it. There is altruism in this world, but no one is capable of nothing but free production. If nothing else, there needs to be enough "pay" for the acquisition and consumption of food.
Okay, enough with the highflying conceptual stuff, the bottom line is that the more protection the consumer base wants on their marketplace, the fewer rights the consumer base will have over what that marketplace contains. There will always be an open marketplace, even if that marketplace is completely underground and known as the black market.
