I wonder if I really own my car?


This kind of thing is exactly why the free software movement is so important. People look at free software advocates like they're crazy (and to be fair RMS might be but that's beside the point), but the point of free software is to avoid exactly this kind of mess, where producers can claim ownership of things that we've purchased wholesale in the name of "licensing." Seriously, this kind of business practice is a problem.
