the current argument is that you don't buy video game 64, you buy a license to use video game 64 privately for all eternity huge asterisk
okay but, why is that only true for digital and not physical, the only difference is that i don't have a piece of plastic to hold
@lynnesbian the response to that would be "it isn't", as in when you buy a physical copy, you still only just have a license to use the game
which is a response that i hate even more somehow
@Frinkeldoodle remember when microsoft tried to argue that with the xbox one launch
@lynnesbian that entire sector of law is made up by people who don't want you to be able to give your game to someone else because they want more money. it's post-hoc-justified nonsense.
@lynnesbian Because they tried so hard to make it true for plastic, and partially succeeded but couldn't fully implement it, and were so relieved when software stopped being physically distributed
