Would owning your own device and not having the company attempt to legally stop you from repairing it be enough? Do you also need the company to provide repair manuals, replacement parts, and manufacture the phone in such a way that it eases your repair job? It that also necessary to "own your own device?"

I agree that whistle blowing is not treason. However, I'm not sure if dumping 700,000 documents counts as whistle blowing. I know it might be difficult, but the individual (or group) doing this needs to be selective with released documents, only releasing those directly related to the wrongdoing that they are trying to expose. If they dump to much, and get someone killed (for something unrelated to the wrongdoing), I don't think they can get a pass for that.
