CBS Studios Inc. claims to hold the copyright on LCARS. Google was sent a DMCA letter to remove the Android app called tricorder  since its use of the LCARS interface was un-licenced. The application was later re-uploaded under a different title, but it was removed again.
Regardless, I still disagree, if it is mandated, it does not matter if the source is open. It has the force of law, and if you are found to be circumventing, your freedom can be just as curtailed as by using it and being found to be doing something illegal or impolitic.
Otherwise I have to oppose the idea entirely.
You are willing to allow it if it is open source? You are willing to trade freedom and privacy for FOSS?
May I ask why? If it is because you have the technical know-how to remove or disable it if the source is available that is a self-centered and elitist view.
What about people who do not have this ability? In this view the techno-crati and the rich and powerful have nothing to fear as they can sidestep the loss of freedom.
The plebes however still get stepped on, more and more. This is the antithesis of what FOSS should be about. It is about enabling freedom and openness, not sociopathy.
Seriously, there are legal methods of tracking people, and privacy protections for a reason. Throwing them all away for the guise of 'safety' NEVER works.
Would you like to be 'followed' because of a political or religious belief of yours, or your skin color, or sexual orientation? Open up for one, open up for all.
All you do is lose rights and privacy. You may gain a sense of safety, but not real safety.
