The corridor of uncertainty: Can you own a digital purchase? | Litteris | Scoop.it

If I buy a book, a music CD or a DVD movie I own it and when I get tired of it I am free to sell it to someone else. This principle of ownership seems simple enough but in the digital world it suddenly ceases to apply.
