I have repeatedly pointed to software owner's attempts to smear and 
misrepresent free software advocates and said that this is a good reason to 
have ND.  It gives us the power to take down the most offensive 
misrepresentations of opinion.  Yes, there are many other ways software 
owners lie and confuse people about free software but having this one power 
is helpful.  Current law also does nothing to prevent that fraud.  People 
have argued that things will work out better over all if we could provide 
modified works of opinion, but no one has shown me any studdies that prove 

I don't think removing unintentional pauses, changing camera angles, or 
providing a good faith transcript are violations of ND terms.  

Fair use should cover quotes well enough so that this is not an issue.  There 
are many RMS quote collections, for example.  I don't think anyone will 
request those are taken down.
