I have no problem with people pulling an oculus so long as they take money while still retaining control. Mark was able to retain control when he took money from investors. I don't see why it would not be unreasonable to make the same demand of Mark when he comes a knocking with a term sheet.

If Oculus had stated that they secured certain protections for their users as terms of the acquisition, such as:

(1) No requirement to use the Facebook login system, not no or ever. (2) No sharing of private information of oculus users and developers with facebook.

... I don't think many of us would have been nearly as disappointed.
