On devices within limited storage (why would we need more, it's all available in the cloud!), we are encouraged to buy, download, watch/listen/read/play, wipe, and repeat, with a UI that gives the impression these shiny trinkets which we believe we have purchased will always be there for us.

And DRM stops us from making a backup copy of what we believe we've purchased.

I guess this is commonly known as a scam.
