I didn't want to enter this either. But I'd like to clarify that if it's 
copyright we're talking about, then having a "product" or "seller" 
doesn't matter. It's simply about the making of copies, and unlicensed 
copies are forbidden by default regardless of how the copies are used. I 
don't like it and disagree with it's whole premise (see onpon4's earlier 
comment) but that's how it works.
