It has nothing to do with ownership. It has everything to do with creation and distribution of the new copies.

The copyright holder cannot tell you what you can do with the copies once legally obtained. There is no control of downstream use, barring copying.

It is a monopoly in every sense of the word, and furthermore, that's the correct word to use.

If I were a serial killer I would not want others to know about it.
They would put me in prison or kill me, an undesirable outcome.

You clearly either know or suspect.
You are part of "others".
You are capable or telling others.

I should silence you.
Killing you would be a very effective way to silence you.

If I were a serial killer I would be capable of causing your death
I am not a serial killer, or you would be dead.


San Jose Police Apologize For Hiding Drone Program, Halts Until Further Review 59

from the no-department dept.
v3rgEz (125380) writes As part of MuckRock's Drone Census, the San Jose Police twice denied having a drone in public records requests — until the same investigation turned up not only a signed bid for a drone but also a federal grant giving them money for it. Now, almost a full year after first denying they had a drone, the department has come clean and apologized for hiding the program, promising more transparency and to pursue federal approval for the program, which the police department had, internally, claimed immunity from previously.
