Since there will be a rush to declare that all software is licensed and
the tangible medium (the copy) is only leased, *ALL HELL WILL BREAK
LOOSE* when those states with retail sales taxes find they can no longer
collect the tax levied on retail software sales. That'll be fun to watch.

When a potential copyright licensee is legally authorized under 17 USC
106(2) to copy software onto a physical medium that he already owns,
there can be no question that the licensee owns that copy. There will
be very few situations (think internet delivery) where an original
copyright owner actually owns the physical medium in which a copy is
first embedded. This decision will not have much impact on the software
market as a whole.
