Free Software out, DRM in?

We all knew that the famous company from Redmond was choosing words carefully, but this is just too much. Convincing others(?) to remove entire passages of text in a conclusion of a conference hosted by the United Nations seems like censorship to me. We have something similar in politics here - people come to a conclusion, agree on something but in the end everything comes out different as planned. But in that case it's not about politics, it's about freedom of choice - one should be given all arguments and facts, not just the "I have money, trust me that I'm right <<facts>>".
Oh, as a side note - I've sent a letter to my MEP with some thanks for voting against software patents last september, maybe it's a little bit late but I hope he will like it anyway...
