You should remember, that every time you use a computer program, the code is copied from your harddrive to RAM memory. Altough this seems to be nitpicking, this fact alone is usually used as an argument, why any use (other than using the discs as frisbees) of a computer program falls under the governance of copyright law. Therefore analogies from the world of books do not always work with software, because "using a book" (reading it) has nothing to do with copyright, while "using a computer program" has.
