Though I was not involved in the making of that paragraph, I'll have to check it, so let's start ;-)
I like the new wording, which shows that rights creates burden for users. This was much less present in the previous wording. Yet, I now miss the aspect that was (I suppose) aimed at not scaring data owners, and reckoned that there is a subtle balance to reach (between owners' and users' interests). I'll see what I can propose, later today...
