40. Well technically, you don't own movies or music after you buy it.

You buy a license. You can buy, sell, or lend it, but you don't own the music or movie. You are licensed to do certain things with it. Hence all of those FBI warnings and whatnot about copying or distributing, even without profit.

You know how The Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews, Phish, Metallica, etc... allow recordings at their live concerts? You are free to record, and distribute that music, as long as it is not for profit. These bands all have a license contract where they had to sign away their rights to the performance that they were about to have. Kind of idiotic, but this was to protect the concert goer from being sued by the record label, who own the original physical recording, so that the person at the show could freely distribute that particular recording.
