A follow-up about intellectual property

"By the arguments of Intellectual Property, I have just as much right to dictate how EA uses that $60 I paid them for Dragon Age: Inquisition as they have to dictate how I use my copy of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Why not? I worked for that money just as hard as they worked for that one copy of DAI. In fact, I probably worked harder, when it's all said and done. But we reject that out of hand, without even taking the time to process the argument. 'Of course you can't tell EA how to spend the money you paid them for that game! You gave them that money! It's theirs now!' I mean, that's it. That's exactly the point. So of course EA can't dictate how I use the game, because they gave me that game. It's mine now." (02/20/17)
