Email: People are realizing what digital ownership actually means

Last week a post on Twitter went viral over an issue someone had with their bought movies on the Apple iTunes Store.

Since then, there was quite a bit of realization from folks that what they’re buying digitally isn’t the product but merely the license to use the product. There’s nothing really stopping Apple or other companies from pulling those licenses for any number of reasons.

I always tell folks to stick with buying Blu-rays.

Or at least buy digitially where you can control it such as GOG. I just stream my movies and TV shows from the harddrive to my Apple TVs.
