Default 23andme raw Illumina intensity reads

Has anyone been able to get the raw Illumina reads from 23andme?

I have asked repeatedly about this and just get a runaround answer. Are we not entitled to the raw data to do our own analysis, instead of just getting their list of genotype calls?

As FDA looks into regulating the DTC genotyping sector, I am advocating that the vendors be required to release the raw data to the subject.

What do you think?
