I've gotta agree with Joel here.

I have to wonder what kind of message Ubuntu, a distribution based on 
Free software and that beats the "freedom" drum would send if  they 
began to use the same tactics that the companies who distribute non-free 
software use.

I'd hope a "turn the other cheek due to our ethics" would be in play 
here.  The one thing I fear for Canonical / Ubuntu is that we become 
what we dislike.
