Comment cut it tout (Score 1) 664

Incredibly the publisher gets a cut of the new sale because at that point they have part interest in the ownership of the item.

Once the item is sold to a punter the person owns the item, the publisher then has no interest, no share, no comeback.

Which is why I guess the games market is trying to move away from media being the product to a download and licence model with no transference of licences.

I think this guy needs to re-read what ownership actualy means..
