Here is another one:

It's the difference between buying a bottle of milk or buying a cow.
It's the difference between paying in parts or paying it all once.

It just fits in the same economic system of a materialized product and a
certain amount of money involved with it.
Both options, buying or renting, don't answer the basic proprierty question.

So: "Having the source codes is the difference between having a house or having
the construction plans"

(And yes, I've had my morning coffee! ;-)
