If I buy something, surely it it then mine, and I can do whatever I like 
with it?

I have a friend who keeps hens in his car (it is not used for driving as 
none of the birds
have passed their test yet). Nobody told him he couldn't use it for that 
purpose; so he didn't have to jailbreak his car.

So "jailbreaking" is perfectly OK as the end-user (or, the OWNER) has 
been unjustly
imprisoned.
