That still glosses over the very small factoid that the copies in
question in this case were superseded by reduced-price _upgrades_ where
the upgrade licensing conditions included an agreement to destroy the
original media.  Where "destroy" does not mean resell them on Ebay.

This is significantly different from copies retired without upgrade, for
example by buying new _full_ versions rather than updates.
