  1. https://fortune.com/2019/07/01/microsoft-delete-ebook/

    MS is deleting every ebook from their store and removing purchases from customers' libraries. I'd tell MS to go fuck themselves, but the fact that they're issuing refunds means I can't really complain about what they're doing. I still think it's kinda bullshit though, like I'd rather keep my purchases even if I can't buy them again, and stuff like this really does make me paranoid about buying digital without having a means to back stuff up or download cracks to keep them forever. Plus I don't really trust the game industry to issue refunds AT ALL when it comes to shutting down online-only games, since there has been only a small handful of instances where customers were reimbursed.

      Refunds or no refunds, this is 100% BS.

      Like no, I decide when my legally acquired, purchased (as in, not rented like some libraries let you do with ebooks) files should be deleted and/or returned. Not Microsoft, or Apple, or anybody else. That’s just straight up invasive.

      yeah my stance is "this isn't as bad as it could have been, but it's a sign of worse things to come in the digital age." I am pretty obsessed with ownership of the media I buy, I don't buy into the "you don't own anything you buy" narrative anymore than I believe that you don't actually own those Harry Potter books you bought at Barnes & Noble. B&N can't knock on my door and physically take away the book I paid for, so it ought to stand to reason that companies can't take away my digital purchases either. The fact that they can, and will, just angers me, and people defending this practice by standing behind the "you don't own your purchases" argument in defense of companies doing this shit is just the irritating cherry on top.

      Yeah was gonna say, this is one of the reasons I’m not at all trusting companies with the digital only age. This concerns me especially when this kinda shit already happens common in gaming.
