If medical risks and experiments can be forced on a child with schools' blessings, why would you think something as trivial as software licenses can't or won't be enforced?
In my mind this could loosely parallel schools enforcing vaccinations. In NJ [for the good of all?] there is a new requirement for kids to get the Chicken Pox vaccination. I disagree with this requirement and believe that it might backfire on my kid's health now or far into the future. The choice has been taken from us. The schools will force us to comply by not allowing the kid to attend school, than evetually they would take us to court. With all the power and money of drug companies and the promise of government funding for enforcing vaccination requirements, we really don't have a chance. The rights and health of individuals doesn't even seem to be a secondary concern.
