   No. You are censored if you are not free to voice or propagate your
   own opinion.

The term isn't being inflated, it is a perfectly suitable term.  I am
not allowed under the DMCA/EUCD to distribute my work that circumvents
immoral barriers for using software, or in other ways using digital
media that has been encumbered by these immoral barriers that I have
on my computer.

   Inflating this term to also mean the stopping of
   copying of other works will only desensitize people to real

Nothing is being inflated.
