Re: "principles, not freeloading"
Can you please not talk about "real property rights". Pretty please?
The problem is that "real property" is a legal term (it means land and buildings, as opposed to personalty or "personal property" - like clothes or consoles). "actual property rights" or "genuine property rights" would be fine.
(As an aside, I think you overstate your case. If the transaction was changed to "leasing", I predict that the price the market would bear would be almost completely unchanged.)
