what is required is education. Educate the buying public and they will start making informed buying/renting/licensing decisions and the problem will go away.
The problem is, that I doubt that most software companies actually want their customers to make informed decisions. If people actually understood the licensing concept they would not pay more than e.g. $2 for widely sold software packages like Microsoft Office.
