On the grounds that it was published to "you" on the web or otherwise?

Come on, whether "you" have legal access to data is completely
irrelevant to how it should be marked up.  Are you seriously trying to 
argue that information publishers should use markup to make data as
useless as possible, from the viewpoint that information consumers are
probably accessing it illegally?
