I would argue that eBooks are more rented (for the users/company's lifetime) than truly owned. E.g., if Amazon goes belly up tomorrow, my Kindle library is only as available as my backup/ability to take the DRM off the file to use in another context.

That's absolutely true when DRM is employed, and is one (among many others) reason we don't use it.
