Of course, in the case of books, I own a copy of that book and not the right to the text and thoughts, so I can't make copies of it and sell it, but reselling the copy (the actual book) that I bought should be my right. Otherwise, I don't really own the item that I bought.
There is no "really owning" anything. Ownership means you have a collection of rights, but those rights are always a subset of all possible rights. I own my house and the property it's on...but I don't have the right to tear my house down and put up a gas station.
