In reply to Nodoid:

Its not rubbish mate, whether you like to believe or not. I am talking about commercial software here just to be clear in you don't OWN the software when you buy a copy of the software you are given a licence to us it. Nothing more, nothing less.

In your example of Winzip, you own a copy to use, you don't own the copyright, unless you have purchased that from the owners of the software.

Simple really.
