Just because you have the right to do something doesn't mean it's a 
reasonable thing to do.

And if you're offering a service, you have responsibilities to your 
customers in addition to rights. They likely have expectations of the 
quality of your service. Sure, you have the right to disappoint them, 
but do you really want to do that intentionally if you have alternatives?
