quoting:"If you buy a copy of piece of software, install and use it on your own computer, and don't have to return it to the vendor when you're finished with it, that likely means you own it."
No, it means you 'own' that license, you get exclusive use of it, as long as you abide by the terms of the license.
Just like a license to drive a car. It is your license, people can't take it from you and go driving around with it. But if you break the rules that apply to the 'licensed user', the law will definitely discontinue your usage of the license, even though it is still 'yours'.
