I think Eric Schmidt reads the Google Blogoscoped forums :)

"The more we can, for example, let users move their data around, never trap the data of an end user, let them move it if they don't like us, the better." – Eric Schmidt @ Web 2.0

The title is really weird, making us sound like thieves.
It should be "Take your data with you".

It's a reference to the 1969 Woody Allen movie "Take the Money and Run." It doesn't really make sense to say that someone is stealing their own data, so you would have to try hard to interpret it that way.
