As the world moves further from the realm of physical media to a purely digital landscape, there's a lingering question of who actually owns what. For example, when you purchase content on Amazon Prime Video, you would imagine that that content is now yours since you shelled out your hard-earned dollars for it, but Amazon is arguing that you don't actually own it at all.
Furthermore, the motion also notes that all of the Prime Video content purchased by Amanda Caudel remains available. At the end of the day, the content you pay for on Amazon Prime Video will likely remain yours, but in the world of digital media licenses, there's always a chance that a third party will revoke or modify Amazon's license, which then affects you. It seems to be a fact of the digital landscape, but there's definitely a sting when you pay full-price for something that you know could be taken away. What's the lesson here? Well, always read the fine print and hang on to your physical media.
