Let's boil this down to its simplest form. You go to buy a relatively new game on Steam, there are two buttons:

New: $60
Used: $45

Who the fuck is gonna press New?

Yes but there will be a limited supply of "used" licenses, so that "Used" button might not always be available. You still have a 1:1 relationship between number of licenses and number of license holders.

I'd have no problem with publishers providing first-time purchasers of a license with additional extras, within reason (e.g. extra maps, "behind the scenes" videos, etc), that will not be available to second hand owners. That way there would still be an incentive to buy a new license.
