I would say that most people feel that way. Unless they clearly label it as a rent, with a limited life and according price (which should be lower than $3-4 I think), they aren't going to convince most of us that we didn't purchase the right to do what we damn well please with our digital copy. Names are important. When you buy something, you expect some things that you don't when you rent, no matter the price.

I have said a few times that I would be willing to accept DRM if the price of the book was low enough, but I'm not really sure that's true, because when I buy an e-book, I feel I am entitled to the rights of an owner, even if it was cheap. I may accept it theoretically, but I would still feel cheated if I had to buy another version of that book I want to re-read, just because I changed readers in the meantime.
