    Read the agreement that came with the product. If you don't agree with it
    you are entitled to return it for a refund.

    No one ever owns software unless they either wrote it or bought the company
    or specifically shelled out lots of cash to have ownership of said software
    transferred to them. All software that one "purchases" is actually just a
    license to use it under the terms of the license agreement.

    Yes, you own the physical disk it came on, the box it came in, etc... But
    the "Intellectual property" is still owned by the company that produces it.
    EG: All Windows are owned by Microsoft and we, then end users, merely
    license it's use.

    The reason they're not is the OEMs negotiate for a significant
    discount on price. With that discount comes a restriction on usage
    rights. The OEMs don't care because the box is out the door.

  7. Oh, I understand the reason. That doesn't mean I have to like it.
    Countless people get confused by this, and I dearly wish there were
    only a standard retail license, and the same rules applied to
    everyone.
