The Question of the Removal of Ownership
Yes. It is a talking squirrel. However, the cartoon squirrel makes a point. Foamy, is correct in that with the elimination of physical media the secondary used market will dwindle significantly. Is this court should this be cause for concern? How about when applied to things such as software? The question of ownership even came up over physical goods. Since the introduction of the iPhone the question has been do you own the phone that you paid for or does Apple own it. It’s your device yet even restricted on what you are allowed to do with it even after you’ve paid for. So is this a slow trend that we are being introduced to overtime in order to get used to the idea of paying for something and then not actually being the owners of what we received. Think about software. Every piece of software comes with a terms of service agreement that the user must agree to or they aren’t allowed to use the software they purchased. I suppose it is something to think about.
