Look e.g. at the jailbreaking of iPhones if you want an example of how individuals defeat a proprietary system made by the biggest company on earth.
Probably not a sound analogy, since interfering with the iOS doesn't need to be impossible or even difficult. It only needs to be detectable after the fact.
But the fundamental difference of course is "If you do such-and-such, some other person will be adversely affected" vs. "If you do such-and-such, you yourself may be adversely affected".
