Replaceable

One of the reassurances people always recite when a new edition is announced is that “TSR/WotC is not going to break into your house and steal your old books.” You don’t need to buy a new edition and all new books if you do not want to. Which seems like a problem for the company. Unlike software they cannot just turn off the activation servers or cease downloads. It’s easy to skip the latest edition and keep playing with your old books. A little too easy.

I wonder if they could do something about that.
