Not so sure about that..
Copyright isn't authorship..
You don't have to have built something to own it's copyright..
You can buy the copyright...
Not saying it's right or wrong...
But from a business perspective, you are allowed to buy copyrights and do (mostly) what you want with them, which frequently involves attempts to profit. And trying to make a profit isn't necessarily wrong.
