Interesting article.  

This is often in the name of copyright protection and increasingly in recent years in the name of providing better security. 'Better security' of course begs the question, against what threat model? It's better security against malicious 3rd parties but what if I'm worried about what the 1st parties are doing?

I'd like to add that FOSS generally has better, although sometimes imperfect (node-ipc malware for example), security against 3rd party malware as well.  This is summed up pretty well with Linus's law: "given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow".  If we're going to have BCI in the future it's crucial that it's done securely, FOSS would definitely be an advantageous paradigm for that.
