In the News Cisco Systems says it will make a major announcement on Tuesday, news that the technology giant says "will forever change the Internet". Shares of Cisco gained 3.65% to close at $26.13 Monday, hitting a new 52-week high of $26.36 intraday, as some analysts speculated that the tech giant is rolling out new gear to help wireless phone companies cope with rising video Web traffic. Cisco had sent out invitations to analysts and the media for a "significant announcement" that it says "will forever change the Internet and its impact on consumers, businesses and governments". Let the speculation begin!

CISCO ARE ARSELOCKERS, they will eventually lock your arse down! we will all end up with locked-down arses!

Now, seriously: your scenario sounds bit paranoid to me.
This won't probobly ever happen. Why? because we have many environments, which cannot be tight by some business model in ANY way, i.e academics, opensource, healthcare, military sector. They just can't afford an IT dependance and they will never agree to such form of trade.
