Are game developers and publishers entitled to used games profits?

    I understand the concept - but I think they make enough money selling it the first time.

    As far as I'm concerned - once I've paid for it I can sell it, destroy it or use it as an ash tray if I so desire.

    This is one of those silly issues where common sense says one thing, but the fine print says another. When the average consumer buys a video game, he thinks he's buying a circular piece of plastic. What the print on the back of the case says is that he's actually buying a license to use that piece of plastic under certain very stringent conditions.

    I get what the law is, and understand it, but like all things, I'm going to err on the side of common sense. If I buy a CD, I'm damn well gonna do what I want with it. I have an iPod Touch, but Apple doesn't want me transferring things via USB without iTunes. I don't like that, so I jailbroke it.
