Sure. It's also _necessarily_ an argument against free software operating
systems as well as an argument against general purpose computing.

It is both of these things because if you want to make things that have
zero marginal cost expensive, you must make it impossible for the user
to remove the nuisances that are preventing him/her from copy/pasting.
And to do that you must first make it impossible for the user to control
their device, (i.e., use their computer).

And Jesus said, "Control the distribution of the bread and fish and we will
have a sustainable business model for the web."
