Any Movie You ‘Bought’ On Amazon, You Technically Do Not Own
When you go to the store and purchase something, you now legally own that product. But when you buy a movie on Amazon, that is not the case unfortunately.
Imagine, you and your family are enjoying a movie night at home so you pull up Amazon to watch a movie on demand. You enter your credit card information and buy the newest Movie to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. So you now own that movie till the end of time right? Wrong! According to the very fine print on Amazon's website (yes you should read those), when you purchase a movie you are really just getting the "Digital Content for on-demand viewing over an indefinite period of time". In layman's terms, you don't own that movie or show and "it may become unavailable due to potential content provider licensing restrictions or for other reasons." If that happens, Amazon is not responsible if you can no longer watch your digital purchase.
Looks like the next time you "Buy a movie", you may want to read up on the terms and conditions of your purchase!
