[ngsxboir] Entertainment consumed quietly

One of the distinctive features of some entertainment is that it can be consumed purely "internally" without causing an external change in action: books, movies, music.

This is why content owners strive to strongly enforce copyright on entertainment.  For things that cause an external action, money could be charged for that action, instead of trying to collect on each sale of the copyrighted work.
