I don't think that is right.  You are allowed to give it to someone
else (transferring the ownership), as a present for example, and if
that is so then they can always transfer it back to you later.

Also consider a book for example.  One can certainly lend a book,
libraries do it quite a lot.  In fact they lend out CDs and DVDs also.
