Yes I think it is a slight bit of over reaction by cod! The drives (hardware) work and can be used to store the files - but the software that is bundled with the drives won't allow certian file types - presumably because WD are concerned they may be prosecuted for enabling copyright breaches.
It is certainly melodramatic to suggest that they would ever restrict the data you could save on you local WD drive.
In fact if I understand the situation correctly - the user who uploads data to the drive CAN access their own files - it simply stops sharing
(on internal or external network) of media files - using the provided software.
