They think you're a parasite, and that sales of used CDs should be

However, that's because they fail to recognize that part of the value
proposition for buying a CD is the fact that you can sell it or give it
away when you don't want it any more. Eliminating the secondary market
would NOT increase the primary market, and might in fact decrease it.
