Legal Well, how about some positive news to end this day? How about annoying the heck out of the Business Software Alliance? There's a new proposal for a directive on consumer rights in the EU, and in it, digital goods - software, online services, and so on - are explicitly defined as goods that are no different than any other good - like bread, watches, or cars. In other words, you would suddenly own the copies of software you buy, effectively declaring the EULA as a worthless piece of paper. Surprise - the BSA is not happy about this.

To be fair, I buy shoes on the Internet, because I haven't worn anything but Vans for 18 years, and I haven't changed my size in 14 years.

Just an aside.

Technically, you are restocking.

Hmm.
Good point.

Their various lines all fit differently, but are traditionally worn somewhat loosely.
