Everything is licensed. Even bread. You have to give it back one day via the toilet or the grave.
I'm largely with you WRT philosophy of 'ownership'.
However in the current legal framework this is wrong and I strongly disprove of the thrust by companies to force more sold products to be treated as licensed - thus for example preventing resale, [non-copyright infringing] sharing and the like.
I consume bread I don't give it back in a materially unaltered way.
