All the more reason for everyone to protest and NEVER purchase another product produced by Nestle Corporation!
As a matter of fact, they are now on my list of products that I will refuse to purchase!
As a matter of fact, I just did a google of Nestle owned water companies, and here is what I got! Go down the page, and you will see all of the water brands that Nestle sells by country along with other Nestle products!

"The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means that as a human being you have a right to water. That's an extreme solution. And the other view is that water is a foodstuff like any other and like any other foodstuff should have a market value. Personally I think it is better to give a foodstuff a value so that we're all aware it has a price, and then that one should take specific measures for the part of the population that has no access to this water, and there are many possibilites there.

rainwater already not allowed to be collected in some places in the US
That depends on how much is collected, actually.
Small amounts of water are not illegal to collect. However, some less-than-reputable sources have conflated the "you can't dam up a creek on your property" to Scary Outrageous News. If you look up the original sources and then look at the actual legal cases, you can see how News Designed To Scare You Organizations really take things out of context.
Here in America. Can't speak for other places.
Nope. That is a clear infringement on those individual's property rights. They should be allowed to collect all the rain water they want on their property. After doing that, they can do whatever they wish with the water.

Any water on private property belongs to the owner of that property. It really is that simple.
If someone walked into your house and took a bottle of water out of your fridge, wouldn't you consider that stealing?
