Being stuck at home, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, means it's a good thing buying media online is so easy and universal. If you need a book, a movie, or an entire TV series to binge, you can buy it from a number of vendors and have it available instantly. It saves a lot of space, for one thing — but it may not save you money, in the long haul.
Amazon Prime has been slapped with a lawsuit by a disgruntled customer who lost access to content through its Prime Video service, despite having paid full price for the media. This wasn't due to a server error or bad formatting or even the inability to play the media anymore; instead, Amazon itself lost access to the media when a third party revoked its license. The plaintiff claims that Amazon misled her into thinking she'd have permanent access to her purchase, regardless of Amazon's licensing practices — just like she would if she'd bought a DVD, VHS, or other physical media.
