Not in every country. In the most states in europe - Netherlands also i think - there is a difference between software and computer programs. So there's just illegal to share copies of computer programs, not software at all. And in some countries there is something like "fixed price for books" and also for ebooks.

Even the European Court of Justice decided about if its legal to resell used computer programs. In the news is often spoken about "used software" but actual the Court just spoke about computer programs.
