Let me know when a corporation legally exterminates millions of people based on the whim of the CEO or when I'm forced by law to deal with them; then I might agree. AHA was a step in the wrong direction for putting companies in charge by forcing people to deal with companies, but overall individual companies have very little control of your life that you don't willingly cede.

It makes about as much sense as patents claiming "...on the internet!"

Why should they give a damn about your opinion on how they spend it?
