No. But this isn't a clean-cut kidnapping.
Regardless of how that bond is there, the bond remains the same. And the relationship remains the same. For all intents and purposes, Walter is Peter's father. A pretty bad one, but still his father.
I repeat. I don't care if Olivia forces Walter to do it. But Walter should be the one to tell Peter. He deserves that much. This is not the kind of thing you should hear from someone else.
Wow, this is getting heated. The way Alter-Walter would see it would be as a kidnapping. Clearly and without question. But I have to agree with Jabber on this...the relationship is far too complex to just call our Walter a kidnapper. He HAS been a father to Peter, even as messed up as it was. To him, it was better than Peter being dead...INCREDIBLY selfish of him, of course. But to blatantly call Walter a kidnapper is just not fair, especially given everything we know and the great writing Jabber mentioned.
You know, I thought of a really stupid analogy.
So if someone (A) walks out of the bathroom with toilet paper stuck to their pants or shoes or something else embarrassing, the first person who sees them (B) decides not to say anything because it would be embarrassing. Then a 2nd person (C) notices the toilet paper and is going to tell (A) about it but (B) tells them not to say anything.
Is it okay for (C) to remain quiet?
What if (C) ignores (B) and tells (A) the truth?
What would happen if (A) were to find out the truth on his own?
I think both (B) and (C) have a moral obligation to tell (A) the truth. Either way, I think (A) is going to be rather angry. lol

Gotta say, I'm totally 100% with Jabberwock on this. Walter needs to be the one to tell Peter the truth. In my opinion, Olivia will end up forcing Walter but he is still the one that needs to do it.
