Did we call the codex an etching on a stone tablet? Or the scroll a codex??

No, we did not. Digital thought transfers (formerly known as ebooks) are not books!! Therefore copyright should not apply, we do of course have to cogitate further on the meaning of this.
Copyright has applied to things that aren't books for centuries. Copyright applies to paintings, photographs, staues, music, architecture.

Your search for excuses to not pay for stuff other people created isn't over yet.
