Games and Apps Don't Transfer?

Help me find the reasoning in this: you purchase a game or application for your phone and "own the rights" to it as opposed to paying a monthly fee for it. You decide you want a new phone (same carrier). Despite the fact that your content (games, applications) is compatible with your new phone, you have to repurchase it. Totally makes no sense. I have Sprint, the stuff I've purchased is in my content manager. I "own the rights" to several games and applications. If I buy a new phone, what happens to my content manager? Does the content manager get deleted when you get a different phone? Anybody??
