Yes, this is deplorable. For centuries, the market has existed as people buying and then owning items, and then being able to resell them once they are done. Now, on October 29th, it will be going before the courts to decide whether or not to take away the right to resell that laptop that you're done with, but still works fine. Technically, you would have to ask the copyright owners for permission to resell your used Dell. Sounds rather unfair, doesn't it? Heads up on this important issue!
