Sadly, that's nothing new. You've never actually OWNED a single piece of
software you've ever bought. The only thing you ever get for your money
is a LICENSE to USE the software, which can be revoked at any time at
the company's discretion. The only thing that's different with Steam is
that instead of merely affecting a revocation, they can genuinely put
that revocation into effect.
