Depends what you mean by “buy”.

If you buy something, but you aren’t allowed to resell it to anyone else expect the manufacturer you bought it from, did you really "buy" it? Or are you just leasing it until you return it to the manufacturer?

Motorola seems set to do that with its new Aura mobile phone, contractually limiting you from reselling the phone, except to them, for some as yet unknown price.

With an unprofitable phone business and a just announced layoff of 3000, perhaps this is not the best time for Motorola to antagonize customers with these kinds of ridiculous tactics.
