It is certainly _not_ up to the individual. It is up to the copyright 
holder of the software they are using *for free* to decide on what they 
can and can't do with it.

Depending on their license choices, a user may, or may not, be legally 
allowed to remove or change things. It actually has _nothing_ to do with 
the individual user in the first instance.

Of course, there is plenty of Free Software where the user can do as 
they please with it. *But* the choice to grant this freedom or not 
belongs to the copyright holder - not the consumer.
