No, there are contracts where authors assign or even sell (in some
jurisdictions) their copyrights.

The Copyright is a temporary monopoly in order to give a negotiating

For some years Microsoft's EULA removes your right to privacy. It also
explicitly allows Microsoft to inspect your premises for compliance, as
well as administrate your machines.

Hence the very appropriate term of Spyware as a description of
Microsoft's most popular software.
