"One thing I am sure of is that is if I bought something it is now mine
try to take it and see what happens.On the other side of that like anything else that is mine how I chose to get rid of it is my right."
Want to bet? Read the license agreements you are forced to agree to in order to open the package, install the software, and/or launch it. You have no more right to re-sell their software than you do to photocopy copyrighted material or download music without paying for it. Difference is that it's not economically feasible to post a cop at every library photocopy machine. When it comes to Rosetta Stone or other $500 software titles, they'll do plenty to protect their intellectual property -- right down to shutting down e-Bay or other sites helping consumers bent on violating the copyright. Oh, and there's a few software trade groups out there that will offer $1,000+ bounties to those of us able and willing to help report violators. If you don't like the policy, don't buy the software, or write your own.
