How is DRM not designed to ensure the above by restricting the ownership of a digital product to the original purchaser?

Once the software has been purchased from the business, it cannot be considered to belong to the business.
Except software is intangible.  You can't buy it.  You can't hold it.  So how can it be purchased?

If you buy a laptop, should you be restricted from selling it to a friend when you no longer have a use for it? After all, you would be distributing a product created by a business without their authorisation.
Actually you have their authorization.  Legally speaking.  It's called property law.  The legal responsibility of the object in question is passed on from the previous owner (usually a retail center) to the consumer.  The consumer then has the right to do with his/her physical property has he/she wishes.

But software isn't physical property and thus does not fall under the same legal definition.



You know, we must be the two most annoying technology people on this forum.  I wonder how many people think our debating in various threads is pre-planned?  Or even how many believe that we are the same person?  I'll have to investigate.

You can't buy intangible things? I guess I should stop paying money for bus rides every week. I should also quit my job, as I'm being paid to provide server management services, amongst other things. And thanks for reminding me never to pay to attend a rock concert.

I'm fully aware of the legal difference between property and copyright, and appreciate that it is you that has made the distinction, because these are all too often confused. However, law is not infallible. If you want to use these legal differences to support your argument, you must first make an argument to support these laws.

I must say that with the advent of creative mode, building in Minecraft has been much improved. Simply being able to fly adds so much control, even though I do not cheat by giving myself infinite amounts of blocks. I also absolutely love the new stone bricks. They are exceedingly simple, yet very stylish as a house-building material. I've got stacks of the stuff on Mugsy's server and it's great for building lookout towers and forts with. I'm gonna try building a fort around my entire island with ramparts and bridges and things. It'll be just great.

You can't play creative mode without having an infinite amount of blocks.

You can switch modes inside a game session? I haven't upgraded yet, waiting on some mod compatibility.

Only in SMP. It's possible with a third-party program to change in SSP, but there's no mod or other utility to change it in-game as far as I know. It'll get there.

I thought 1.8 is lovely.  It has better lighting effects, ruins, and Window Panes!

My thoughts are "it's getting there".  It's more interesting to explore now.  I still don't really like the combat much, but blocking is a nice addition.
Nomad is a superhero.

1.8 has lots of nice little things, I suppose, but I'm mostly excited about the improved lighting/biomes. I hope there will be eventually be enough gameplay to warrant a "game", but even if that never happens it's a great builder.

He probably had Megablocks, or some other equivalent Lego knock-off.  They're not the same.

why?

It didn't seem like nearly enough of a change to warrant excitement.  The new lightning and whatnot is cool and all, but I'm just not a big fan.  I've probably just gotten burnt back.  I'm sure I'll be back to Minecraft in a few weeks/months, and I'll be much more excited about it then.

I thought I'd put up my server over the weekend or so. Wendy is on as I post this. I'd leave it on for longer, but I don't expect any interest, so meh.

I updated to b1.9 prerelease 4 and started a new world.
If you still want to play, but still have b1.8, go get b1.9 here.

EDIT: My server is having some radical problems with version b1.9. I will look into installing some newer hardware, so the server will be down for now.
