I've been saying this since Steam arrived on the scene (and has taken off) but everyone seems to think it's the second coming or something. Maybe I'm just showing my age or maybe this generation doesn't really understand what "owning" something means, but we are headed in a really bad direction with the way software and games are heading.

Gaben said they have a kill switch for if they ever went out of business. They could release all purchases. Who knows if they would actually do it, though.

It's less going out of business than selling Steam to a third party. I lost access to about half the games I purchased on Direct2Drive when they sold the business to Gamefly because the contracts were exclusive to D2D.
