     Proprietary software may run anything, this really does not matter
     those devices are not under ownership of the user. If it runs on
     somebody's else computer it is not affecting the user who does not
     the computer or user's data.
     What matters is that third parties should not request or ask that
     people install proprietary software and run it on personal devices
     that way people lose control over their computing.
     If that is so, then whichever party asks or demand by the law or
     other rule to run the proprietary software than this party should
     guarantee by some value the functionality of software and that could
     be acceptable if the party demanding it or government, PROVIDES THE
     DEVICE, where that software would exclusively run. That is very
     similar to various devices like heart beat or pulse measurement or
     watches where inside proprietary software runs but does not affect
     user nor user's data.
     As if any law is enacted to run some software then that law cannot
     demand people to buy smart phones or computers, the law must also
     that devices will be provided to people.
     Though I am against such new laws, and I consider it fascism. We are
     in the new fascism area.
     Nobody should force people to install proprietary software on THEIR
     devices as that is abuse of human rights.
