In property law, one of the most important ownership interests is the right to use and exclude others from using the item. The OLPC users seem to have a pretty strong one of those rights.
Which country's laws are you talking about, specifically? Without wanting to comment on the question of who will be (or, for that matter, *should* be) considered the owner of the laptops, it seems like a bad idea to me to argue based on "the law" when there is not actually such a thing as "the law", but rather a host of different kinds of legal systems with different laws. How much DO you know about property law in, say, Brazil, China, India or Rwanda?
