I presume that you are going to make them agree to a licence agreement that
(at least) requires them to either pay you recurring fees, not distribute
originals, copies or modifications, and/or terminate their usage on your
request, so as to prevent them obtaining a copy from a second source. 
Effectively, you plan to trap your customers to buying from you or junking
all they've done?  Then you can charge them as much as possible?  If so, I
think that's an entirely accurate description.

Apologies, but it is late here now, so I may be ineloquent.
