In the real world, when established companies go out of business, they ( and their property) usually don't vanish overnight. Generally, they are taken over by someone else, and that someone takes over their obligations. This popular objection has less merit than it appears.
Of course , its easy to say " No thanks" but if ALL the publishers move in that direction, well -I'm sure people who preferred vinyl said "No thanks" when the music companies all went to CD, too. Didn't stop it from happening.
