But there is an established right to "transfer a license". The industry dropped the ball here by trying to have it both ways ("license" vs "sale"). The consumer get the worst parts of either concept in their perfect world. A subscription fee to use the material should have been an early standard.... a "membership" if you like. One that could be dropped but not subleased. The "infinite copy" issue would have been muted to some extent.

There will always be a "patron class" and a "peanut gallery" ... entertainment's objective is to please the patron class enough to warrant their support ($$). Badgering the peanut gallery is a dead-end.
