You may own the house you live in, and you may own the land it is built on.

That's a pretty decent analogy, but there's always a loophole. In this case: If I inundate your mailbox with unwanted mail, or if I knock on your door at all hours of the day and night, you do have remedies beyond tossing the mail in the trash and refusing to open the door. The precise nature of those remedies depends on your jurisdiction. And if it is found that I've been going around telling all my friends to go knock on your door...
