Where I am from it has actually been tested in courts, too, with the result that no matter how the license was obtained or what the EULA says it is your if it was sold as a product, not as a license; it must be made clear up-front if you are signing in for a license. If it is however sold and advertised as a regular product then it is by all relevant laws a separate product and thus all ownership for that particular product are on the buyer.

As far as I am aware this same view on the law applies to most European countries, though there are obviously a few exceptions. It is quite different to how the US laws treat these things: there something sold to you can still be a license to use it even though it is wholly advertised and sold as a complete, separate product. That is what undermines consumers' rights so deeply.
