Who owns non-existent digital "things"?
Mar 27, 2013

Big Harvard Business Review article about the ownership of digital "things" when those things do not actually exist, such as a photograph that has not been printed, although that's not an actual example from the article.

We can buy a book in a book store, take it home, read it, look at the photos in it, and then sell it to a used book store, which will in turn sell it to someone else.

But if it is an e-book, how does the law work?
